The walkathon organized by the Department of Paediatric Nephrology at Dr Mehta’s Hospitals, under the leadership of Dr. Kalaivani Ganesan along with her colleagues Dr Sudha Ekambaram and Dr Sukanya Govindan with the guidance of Dr. B.

Over 200 students and their parents participated in the walkathon and the students carried placards and banners to spread awareness on precautions and management of chronic kidney ailments and importance of prevention of kidney ailments. This year’s World Kidney Day is being observed with the theme ‘Living Well with Kidney Disease”.

Speaking on the occasion Dr. Kalaivani Ganesan highlighted “The objective of organising this event is to increase education and awareness about effective symptom management and patient empowerment, with the ultimate goal of encouraging meaningful participation in every-day life.”

On the occasion Dr Sudha Ekambaram added “Effective measures to prevent kidney disease and its progression is important, patients with kidney disease – including those who depend on dialysis and transplantation – and their care-partners should also feel supported, especially during pandemics and other challenging periods, by the concerted efforts of kidney care communities
Specifically, WKD calls on everyone to advocate for concrete preventive measures in every country to improve kidney care by encouraging them to adopt healthy lifestyles (access to clean water, exercise, healthy diet, tobacco control. Many types of kidney diseases can be prevented, delayed and/or kept under control when appropriate prevention measures are in place. Sensitizing every individual of the world population on these preventive measures is one of the goals of physicians who care for patients with kidney diseases.

Dr Mehta’s Hospitals today has over 500 beds across our Multi-Specialty Tertiary Care Units in Chetpet and Velappanachavadi with over 80 Medical and Surgical specialties and 600 leading clinicians.

The specialist team from The Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Gastrointestinal Oncology and Minimally Invasive Surgery at Dr Mehta’s Hospitals, a 200 bedded Multi-Specialty Tertiary Care Unit at Velappanchavadi, Chennai, successfully removed cancer in hypopharynx and upper esophagus through complete minimally invasive surgery. The surgery was performed in an effort to save the life of a 56-year-old gentleman from Sivaganga District, Tamil Nadu.

Speaking on the Laparoscopic Surgery, Dr Bala Murugan highlighted “The 56yrs old gentleman presented with complaints of difficulty in swallowing which was painful. Endoscopy revealed a growth in hypopharynx (throat) and upper esophagus (food pipe) which was biopsied and proved to be cancer. MRI neck, chest and abdomen confirmed the presence of cancerous growth spreading to larynx (voice box). As any delay in treatment would increase the cancer spread and also patient wanted immediate surgery, we promptly decided to go with surgical intervention. The proposed surgery was COMPLETELY THORACO LAPAROSCOPIC LARYNGO PHARYNGO ESOPHAGECTOMY WITH ENDOSTAPLED GASTRIC PULL UP. The surgery involved removing the pharynx (throat), larynx (voice box) and esophagus (food pipe) and a part of the stomach as enbloc removal of cancer.

In order to make patient eat normally through mouth, the stomach is brought to the floor of mouth and joined with it. This surgery was done in complete minimally invasive technique without laparotomy (abdomen opening) or thoracotomy (thorax opening) for the first time in Tamil Nadu by Dr Bala Murugan. The patient was in intensive care for immediate post-operative days and was discharged without any pain, complications and scars in abdomen.
