In a rare feat, a doctor of Metro Hospital Dimapur successfully conducted three surgeries at the same time on a 50-year old patient, Abenla who was suffering from pain in the throat, deafness and nasal block for five years. The patient was successfully operated by Dr. Sunil Kumar Sethi MBBS, MS (ENT) on Thursday.
According to the doctor, the patient was suffering from oral submucous fibrosis. He also said that other ENT specialist would not have attempted “adeno toncillectomy” under such circumstances. The surgery was done free of cost and lasted for three hours. During the surgery a fish bone was also removed from the patient’s throat which was stuck in her there for the last 10-years.
