He had to undergo a very complicated procedure.The patient was initially told that he requires chemotherapy. But he decided to get a second opinion at Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Super Speciality Hospital. The patient consulted Dr. Rajeev Saini, Senior Consultant Medical Oncology. Dr Saini evaluated the patient and ordered for some tests including a PET scan, after which he concluded that the patient needed a surgery rather than chemotherapy as the tumorwas localized to the small intestine, the 2nd part of Duodenum. The patient was then referred to Dr.AbhinavChoudhary, Consultant Surgical Oncology who confirmed the above opinion.Explaining the procedure, Dr. Abhinav Choudhary said that the procedure they were planning was known as Whipples procedure and carried high risk of morbidity and mortality in the best of centers. It’s a procedure involving resection of multiple organs followed by multiple anastomoses.Dr. Abhinav Choudhary decided that two teams will perform the surgery to minimize fatigue and prevent any compromise in the quality of the surgery. Accordingly Gastro Intestinal Surgery team led by Dr. Suhail Khuroo and Dr. Ajaz Wani joined for the procedure. They were ably assisted by Dr.Vikas Heer, Consultant Surgical Oncology.The Patient tolerated the surgery well and so his recovery was smooth. He starting taking food by the seventh post operative day and was discharged on the 10th day of the surgery.It is yet another example of successful multidisciplinary approach at Sri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana hospital.Dr. JP Singh, Clinical Director at the hospital said “Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Narayana Super speciality hospital is equipped with world class infrastructure and equipment which helps the faculty of the hospital to perform rare surgeries which were never performed in the state earlier.”He also mentioned that the highly qualified dedicated and professional team of doctors and support staffs are available round the clock at SMVDNSH which helps saving lives every day.
