Breakthrough Cases View All

67-years old Ajaib Singh was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had mild burning in urine and poor urinary flow which did not bother him much. He was examined by Dr Priyadarshi Ranjan, Senior Consultant, Urology, Robotic & Kidney Transplant Surgery. A biopsy was done which showed Adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

After suitable investigations, he was taken up for Robotic Radical (RARP) prostatectomy, which is the gold standard and treatment for early stage prostate cancer. He underwent RARP by the most advanced da Vinci Robotic system and had an uneventful recovery. The entire surgery was done with the help of the robot and there was hardly a 3-4 cm incision in the supra-pubic area through which the specimen was taken out, apart from 8 mm port site inversion. He received a nerve sparing procedure which resulted in preservation of erectile function and continence.

He had an excellent recovery. His hospital stay was just 2 days (as against 7-8 days for traditional open procedure) and was subsequently discharged. There was minimal blood loss and the patient was up and about after the surgery on the same day. His biopsy report showed complete removal of the tumor and he achieved excellent functional result after the RARP.

RARP has now emerged as the gold standard treatment for cancer of the prostate. The da Vinci Robotic platform gives excellent vision and resolution along with 7 degree movement of instrument which aids in better dissection and application of stitches. The overall pain, hospital stay and cancer free rates are comparable to the best centers in the world.

A team of doctors, led by Dr HK Bali, Director Cardiology, Fortis Hospital, Mohali, has successfully performed the first non-surgical valve replacement in the region.

A 75-year old female from Mohali was having symptoms of severe breathlessness on minimal day to day activities. On investigating, she was found to have critical narrowing of one of the left-sided valves of the heart – the aortic valve, along with critical narrowing of artery of the heart.

Narrowing of the aortic valve is a life threatening disease and normally requires an open heart surgery with valve replacement. Epidemiological studies have determined that more than one in eight people aged 75 and older have narrowing of the left-sided valves of the heart, which is known as aortic stenosis.  If not treated emergently, this may lead to severe disability and sudden death.

75-year old homemaker from Mohali was seen by cardiac surgeons and was found to be very high risk for surgical aortic valve replacement. After detailed discussion, the Heart Team of Fortis Hospital, Mohali, decided to offer non-surgical transcutaneous aortic valve replacement as the best treatment option to her family. Dr HK Bali led a team of doctors to successfully perform the first transcutaneous aortic valve replacement (TAVR/TAVI) of the region. He also did the stenting of a narrowed vessel of the heart. The procedure lasted 2.5 hours and was completely successful. Patient has made complete recovery and has become mobile from the second day after the procedure.

Percutaneous aortic valve replacement is a new treatment option for patients of critical aortic stenosis, in whom surgical risk is very high as it carries increased morbidity. Elderly patients suffering from this critical disease would benefit greatly by this new technology. Valve replacement is done from the groin and the patient can become completely active next day after the procedure. This is a completely non-surgical technique and the groin site is repaired non-surgically immediately after the procedure.
