Apollo Cancer Centres, Kolkata, performs Eastern India’s first Robotic Radical Nephrectomy with IVC Thrombectomy for renal tumour

Chennai, June 7, 2024 – Seventy-year-old Mr Dulal Dutta was discharged within five days after the removal of renal tumour through Robotic Radical Nephrectomy with Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Thrombectomy. The size of his kidney had increased to 12 cm x 7 cm x 6 cm (the normal size of a human kidney is about 10cm x 5cm x 3 cm) due to the growth of a malignant tumour that measured 6cm x 5.5cm x 5cm and a 3cm tumour thrombus in the Inferior Vena Cava - IVC (which is the largest vein in the body) leading to obstruction of the blood flow.   

Dr Tarun Jindal, Senior Consultant Uro-Oncology and Robotic Surgeon, Apollo Cancer Centres, Kolkata, said, The integration of robotic technology in removing renal tumour has redefined complex tumor removal procedures. With unparalleled precision and minimally invasive approaches, robotic surgery offers a remarkable potential in ensuring meticulous tumor excisions. This level of precision can be witnessed in the case of the patient, which led to his swift recovery and return to normal life post treatment despite the extensive nature of the surgery. The innovative modality not only enhances surgical outcomes but it also minimizes postoperative complications, signifying a transformation in oncological care.”

Dr Anshuman Roy, Anesthesiologist, Apollo Cancer Centres, Kolkata, said, “The intricacies of administering the right dosage of anesthesia, fluid management and management of blood circulation during the time of IVC clamping during surgery makes these cases extremely challenging. The integration of robotic surgery has notably contributed to the advanced treatment and recovery processes in such complex cases. By leveraging trailblazing robotic techniques, we have optimized precision and efficiency in addressing these challenging conditions, ultimately fostering faster recuperation of our patients.”

Mr Dutta’s son, Mr. Debajit Dutta, said, “In witnessing the exceptional care and advanced treatment provided by the team of doctors, I am grateful for the procedure that led to the removal of the cancerous tumour as well as my father’s swift recovery. The expertise and dedication of the medical team have truly made a difference, reaffirming our trust in Apollo Cancer Centres Kolkata’s commitment to pioneering medical innovation and ensuring the well-being of patients.”
