Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals Performs Life-Saving Surgery on 67-Year-Old Patient’s Burst Gall Bladder
Overcoming age and health challenges, the interdisciplinary team demonstrates the power of advanced medical techniques.
The Critical Situation
The patient was initially admitted to a Lucknow hospital, where it was discovered that the gall bladder infection had ruptured, spreading the infection into the abdomen and bloodstream. Given the patient’s history of high blood pressure, diabetes, myasthenia gravis, and osteoporosis, a definitive surgery was deemed too risky. Instead, a temporary drain pipe was inserted to remove the infection.
Seeking Advanced Treatment
The patient chose to pursue alternative care at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi. Dr. Arun Prasad led a multidisciplinary team of specialists in anesthesia, endocrinology, cardiology, and neurology to devise a tailored plan for the laparoscopic cholecystectomy, aiming to optimize the patient’s surgical outcome and minimize potential complications.
A Resounding Success
The laparoscopic cholecystectomy was a success, showcasing the power of advanced technology and interdisciplinary collaboration in the medical field. After a day of close monitoring in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the patient was discharged from the hospital.
