A surgeon at Nawaloka Hospitals prepares for a kidney stone removal procedure using mini nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL)

Nawaloka Hospital has achieved a remarkable feat by performing a complex kidney stone surgery using mini nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL). This procedure, which removed a 4cm kidney stone involving the entire left kidney, is being hailed as a medical marvel due to the complexity of the tone size.

Nawaloka’s medical team, equipped with state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated machinery, removed the kidney stone, leaving no remnants behind. The success of this delicate surgery was the result of exceptional teamwork, with only six members present in the surgical team, including the operating surgeon, two nursing assistants, two technicians and one radiographer.

From the initial discovery of the stone to the completion of the surgery, Nawaloka Hospitals executed the entire process in less than 24 hours, setting a new standard for efficiency and patient care in the medical field. This quick recovery and swift return to routine by the patient is a testament to the effectiveness of the surgery.

The patient’s swift recovery also had a cosmetic advantage, as laser technology ensured no scars, stitches, bleeding, or post-operative complications. The patient experienced zero pain and returned to everyday life seamlessly.

Lead surgeon of the operation Urologist Dr. Kalana Parana Palliya Guruge said that such remarkable outcomes are only possible due to the highly skilled staff and the state-of-the-art technological equipment and accessories at Nawaloka Hospitals.

“The surgery underscores the immense potential that lies at the intersection of skilled medical professionals and cutting-edge technology. I am proud of our exceptional team and grateful for the state-of-the-art equipment and resources at Nawaloka Hospitals that made this success possible.

The surgery reaffirms our commitment to providing our patients with the best care possible, offering them not just treatment but hope and a path to a healthier, pain-free life,” Urologist Dr. Palliya Guruge said.
