Dr. Christopher Taylor Barry is an American abdominal transplant surgeon (liver, kidney, pancreas) and a passionate organ donation advocate. He came to India in August 2014, initially on a voluntary “sabbatical”, to help stimulate deceased donor transplant and organ donation throughout India. He was appointed State Guest Organ Transplant Consultant to the Government of Rajasthan in November 2014 and, in four short months, he organized and participated in the first two organ donations and organ recoveries in Rajasthan history, first three deceased donor kidney transplants and first organ sharing via “green corridors” from Rajasthan to Delhi.
Dr. Barry’s new liver transplant surgery consultancy service, ctbtransplant.com, is offered to both public and private hospitals. He and his rapidly growing team offer expertise in liver transplant program development, particularly with regard to deceased donor liver transplant and organ donation in India.
In July 2015, Dr. Barry joined Mahatma Gandhi University of Medical Sciences and Technology as an Adjunct Professor and Transplant Consultant to build the liver transplant program at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital from scratch.
Dr. Barry has also assisted Dr. Srinivas Prabu Chava’s team at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences in Secunderabad with a multiorgan recovery and liver transplant.
