Hyderabad, the state capital of Telangana, has revealed an unexpected example. A 50-year-old patient had 156 stones removed from his kidney in a local hospital. Many stones were removed through keyhole incisions by doctors at the city’s renal care centre, Preeti Urology and Kidney Hospital. This information was provided by the hospital’s doctors on Thursday.
According to Preeti Urology and Kidney Hospital, this is the most number of kidney stones ever removed from a single patient in India utilising laparoscopy and endoscopy rather than major surgery. The patient works as a teacher in a school in Hubli, Karnataka, according to the hospital. A huge cluster of kidney stones was discovered during a screening after he had a severe ache in his abdomen.
The doctor said – it was a challenging task to remove the kidney unusually
The patient also had an ectopic kidney, which was located near his belly rather than in the urinary tract as it should be. According to doctors, extracting the stones from the kidney in an irregular manner was a difficult process. According to Dr. V Chandra Mohan, urologist and Managing Director of Preeti Urology and Kidney Hospital, the patient had been forming stones in his stomach for more than two years but had never shown any symptoms. However, the abrupt onset of pain compelled him to conduct all necessary tests, which revealed kidney stones. We chose to undergo laparoscopy and endoscopy to remove the stones rather than resort to major surgery after examining his health.
