Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar: A three-month-old baby got a new lease of life after doctors performed a successful surgery on his blocked right kidney.A supra-major surgery was carried out on November 23 to treat the anomaly and the baby was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday. Paediatric surgeon Dr R J Totla said the patient, Shaikh Hasnain, had this issue since he was in his mothers womb.The kidney was enlarged due to the blockage.The anomaly was visible to the naked eye as the childs abdomen appeared distended from outside, he said.As the toddlers family was unable to bear the expense of the surgery, the doctors advised them to seek financial assistance from the Chief Ministers (CM) relief fund. A major amount was later sanctioned under the CM relief fund following which the doctors carried out the surgery.The parents were aware of the congenial condition of the blocked right kidney as initial investigation scans had pointed out the anomaly. After birth, the child was kept on medication till the surgery was carried out, Totla said.Notably, one such complex surgery was demonstrated live during the 49th national conference of the Indian Association of Paediatric Surgeons (IAPS) held here early November and the team of doctors employed the same modern techniques for treating the baby.Other doctors who were part of the surgery were urologist Dr Martand Patil, paediatric anaesthesiologist Dr Gopal Bhattad and Dr S R Totla.We also published the following articles recentlySonu Sood aids young man for fathers heart surgeryPallav Singh from Uttar Pradeshs Deoria district wrote about his fathers surgery at AIIMS Delhi.
