OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: For the first time in Odisha, a team of doctors of AIIMS, Bhubaneswar performed a total femur replacement of a patient.

The team of doctors led by Dr Sujit Kumar Tripathy, additional professor, Orthopaedics department of the hospital operated a 30-year-old man from Kendrapada district who had a huge tumour in the left thigh bone. He was suffering from primitive neuroectodermal tumor of thigh bone.

He had already undergone two surgeries in 2018 and 2019, but that was inadequate to remove the tumor completely. He subsequently developed recurrence of the tumor and received chemotherapy prior to the current surgery. The tumor was close to the blood vessels.

After careful surgery, whole of the tumor was excised in toto and total femur megaprosthesis was implanted by Dr Tripathy and his team. The surgery took around 4 hours. Dr Aparajita Panda and her team provided anaesthesia to the team.

This was the first surgery of total femur replacement in Odisha. Post-surgery patient is fine, said Dr Tripathy. However, the patient has to receive further chemotherapy.

Director, AIIMS, Bhubaneswar Prof Mukesh Tripathi and superintendent Dr SN Mohanty have congratulated the team for the successful femur replacement.
