Bhubaneswar: In a procedure used rarely in Odisha, doctors at Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) here cured a cancer patient by removing a portion of his affected kidney through an advanced laparoscopic surgery.

There was no scar or cut in the 70-year-old male patient’s body, and he was discharged from the hospital within two days.

Assistant Professor and Head of Urology Department Dr Sumanta Mishra, who performed the complex operation, said that patients who are advised partial nephrectomy by laparoscopic method (partial removal of the kidney) have to wait for months and visit other states. Very few hospitals in Odisha perform this surgery, he claimed.

The patient, with diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease (CKD), was diagnosed with a 4 cm x 4 cm tumour on his left kidney. He was given the option of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy as he had multiple comorbidities and CKD, and removing the cancer-only part with intact kidney was best for him.

Dr Mishra and his team performed the complex procedure of partial nephrectomy by laparoscopic method, or keyhole surgery, successfully.

He said the patient has been completely cured of cancer and the remaining kidney is working well.

The success of this surgery at KIMS Super Speciality Hospital brings hope to those with similar health concerns as it offers a less painful and faster recovery alternative.

KIIT and KISS Founder Dr Achyuta Samanta congratulated the doctors for the path-breaking surgery, emphasising that providing advanced treatment with care and compassion has always been the aim of KIMS.
