The first-ever surgery to remove six stones in kidneys without opening them – Per Cutaneous Nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) – was performed yesterday at the Badulla Hospital by a team of doctors led by Nephrologist Kalana Paranapalliyaguruge. 

“The surgery was performed on three patients with kidney failure. It was done by passing a thin-lighted tube equipped with a camera through an incision to the kidneys to dissolve the stones. This was the first time a PCNL was performed by a single team of doctors apart from the conventional operational systems. The patients are recovering,” Dr. Paranapalliyaguruge said.

    Great work and very well done!! History made! Do keep it up. Everyone involved from the Operating suite staff, cleaning staff, Nurses, Nurse assistants, Xray Techs, Junior and senior resident Doctors and the Consultant Surgeon/s should share the kudos! Now ensure the patient's Renal system recovers. MM

    I had a PCNL surgery eight months ago in Durdans Hospital, Colombo. I am blessed that I had Dr. Kalana Parana Palliya Guruge performed the surgery to remove 3cm size stone without opening the kidney.
