Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences
The Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS) is a mono-superspeciality hospital for liver and biliary diseases located at New Delhi, India. It has been established by the Government of the Nation Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi as an Autonomous Institute, under the Societies Registration Act - 1860, at New Delhi. ILBS is a teaching hospital and has been given the status of Deemed University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India.

ILBS has been created by the Government of Delhi to make it a dedicated international center of excellence for the diagnosis and management of liver and biliary diseases and to provide advanced training and research in the field of Hepato-biliary Sciences.


The foundation stone of ILBS was laid in 2003. The first phase of ILBS was built by the public works department (PWD). The first phase was completed in 2009. The formal inauguration of the hospital took place on January 14, 2010 by the Chief Minister of Delhi, Mrs. Shiela Dixit. The second phase of ILBS is being constructed by the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and is likely to be completed by 2011.

ILBS is a 155-bedded hospital treating diseases of the liver, biliary tract and pancreas. The hospital has outdoor, in-patient and emergency services.

Out-Patient Department (OPD) Services

The Out-Patient Department (OPD) services of ILBS run six days a week from 9 AM to 2 PM. The OPD services are run by the hepatologists and by the hepato-pancreato-biliary surgeons. In addition, specialty clinics in Nephrology and Neurology are also run daily. The appointment for outdoor services can be obtained by calling the ILBS number +91-11-46300000, however, patients can be seen directly, even without appointment. A registration charge of Rs. 100 is charged from all new patients in addition to a consultation charge of Rs. 200, which is valid for one week. For stable patients reaching the OPD in the morning every effort is made to complete their investigations the same day, so that they can go back with a diagnosis and prescription by evening.

In-Patient Services

The ILBS is a 155-bedded hospital. The beds are categorized into three types: general beds, semi-private beds, and private beds.

Critical Care Services

ILBS has four intensive care units (ICUs): Gastro-intestinal bleed ICU, Liver coma ICU, HPB surgical ICU, and Liver transplant ICU.

Gastro-intestinal (GI) Bleed ICU

The GI Bleed ICU is the first dedicated ICU in the country for GI bleeding. It is managed by combined team of hepatologists, critical care medicine intensivists, GI surgeon, and intervention radiologists. GI bleeding from any cause (both liver related and non-liver related) is appropriately managed here.

Casualty Services

The casualty services of ILBS run 24-hours a day. There are dedicated beds for emergency and triage. All kinds of liver, biliary, and pancreatic emergencies are dealt in the emergency. After adequate stabilization the patients are then shifted to the appropriate wards.
