Dehradun. Mrs. Mithlesh (70 years) had been undergoing dialysis for several years due to kidney failure. Recently, the patient's legs became severely swollen, and breathing became difficult. In response, the patient's family brought them to Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital for treatment.
At Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital, Interventional Radiologist Dr. Prashant Sarda conducted a Color Doppler test on the patient's legs, revealing the presence of blood clots in the veins, a condition known as deep vein thrombosis.
The blood clot had even reached the patient's stomach veins, posing a potentially fatal risk. Immediate admission was granted due to the seriousness of the situation.
The patient was a State Government Health Scheme (S.G.H.S.) Card Holder which is under Empanelment with Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital. Dr. Prashant Sarda described the critical condition of the patient in the concerned form, leading to government approval for conducting the operation.
The delicate surgery was performed using the advanced "Penumbra Lightning" technique, requiring only a small incision.
During the 15-minutes procedure, Dr. Prashant Sarda and his team skillfully removed the blood clot. Following the surgery, the patient's condition improved, leading to discharge.
Dr. Prashant Sarda highlighted that this cutting-edge "Penumbra Lightning" technique involves minimal invasion, anesthesia, and employs robotic technology for precise blood clot removal.
Shri Guru Ram Rai Institute of Medical & Health Sciences and Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital has achieved a significant milestone as the first medical college in India to successfully employ this technique.
The patient and their family expressed profound gratitude to Dr. Prashant Sarda and his team for saving a life. Their success has recalled the saying ‘ Doctors are the Gods of Erath’. Dr. Prashant Sarda and the team's accomplishment has written a new chapter in the country's medical history by successfully implementing the Penumbra Lightning technique.
Shri Mahant Devendra Dass Ji Maharaj, Chairman of Shri Mahant Indiresh Hospital, extended hearty congratulations and showered his divine blessings over Dr. Prashant Sarda and his team for this unprecedented achievement.
