Doctors at Aware Gleneagles Global Hospital have achieved a rare feat by removing 206 stones that have formed in a patient’s kidney. The hospital doctors revealed the details on Thursday. Veeramalla Ramalakshmayya (56) from Nalgonda has been suffering from pain for six months. He was admitted to the Hospital in LB Nagar last month.
Ramalakshmayya underwent a thorough examination under the supervision of senior urology doctor Pula Naveen Kumar and was diagnosed with stones in his left kidney. Doctors operated on Ramalakshmayya with a keyhole and removed 206 kidney stones within an hour. Ramalakshmayya, who was under medical supervision for two days, was discharged.
Dr. Naveen Kumar was ably supported by Dr. Venu Manne, Consultant Urologist; Dr. Mohan, Anesthesiologist; and other members of the nursing and support staff. Doctors say that the problem of dehydration is more prevalent in summer and the problem is due to excessive sun exposure. Doctors recommend consuming large amounts of water and juices to say hydrated. They say that if the percentage of water is low, stones will form in the kidneys.
