St Marys Children and Community Hospital Umuowa Orlu:

Our combined team of doctors performed an outstanding surgery recently in our hospital.   A 45 year old woman who had massive enlarged abdomen for over 5 years, associated with severe pains.   She had visited several hospitals with no cure, and had resorted to prayers and spiritual support.

However, someone directed her to our hospital where she decided to give a last trial. Our combined team of General Surgeons , Gynaecologist, Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons , Anaesthesiologists took her to theatre and removed the giant tumour weighing 80kilograms.

Reacting to this development, the lead surgeon , and head of department Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr Pius Agu said “ … this is the biggest tumour that has been removed from the pelvis ever documented”

The patient  was managed in the Intensive Care Unit and made good recovery and was discharged home on the 20th day in stable condition.  She has fully recovered and is now very stable and reunited to her family and the society.
