Bhubaneswar, June 5:
Doctors at the Institute of Medical Sciences and Sum Hospital (IMSSH) have conducted a rare surgery to remove a seven kg tumor from the abdomen of a woman suffering from cancer.
A team led by the hospital’s surgical oncologist, Dr Sunil Agrawala conducted the surgery over eight hours this week to take out the tumour from the 40-year-old patient who had ovarian cancer. “She did not respond to chemotherapy and the doctors had to take the challenge to operate on her,” Dr Agrawala said.
The surgery team, which comprised Dr H Murmu and Dr Saswat besides Dr Agrawala, also reconstructed the patient’s abdominal wall. The patient is recovering.
