 Maharashtra Doc Removes 1.72 Lakh Kidney Stones from Single Patient

A doctor in Maharashtra entered the Guinness Book of World Records for removing the most number of kidney stones from a single patient back in December last year with the total number of kidney stones documented as 1.72 lakh.

Forty five year old Dhanraj Wadile, who runs a paan shop in Shahada town in Dhule district experienced severe abdominal pains for more than six months even after taking a number of medications. He then approached Dr Ashish Rawandale-Patil at Tejnaksh Healthcare's Institute of Urology where it was found that he had Pelvi-Ureteric Junction obstruction of the left kidney.

Rawandale-Patil then decided to operate on Wadile to remove the huge number of renal stones and had to call in a diamond worker in order to accurately count the exact number of stones removed.

He then contacted the Guinness Book of World Records who requested the details of the operation before confirming that Rawandale-Patil had indeed created a record with the total number of stones removed.

"I got the hard copy of the certificate only a couple of days back. This is an important milestone for me and my institute. It is the combined effort of my team that could take this small town to an international level", he said.
