  • Dr. C R Suvarna

    My name is Dr. Chandrashekhar Suvarna and I was recently diagnosed with early prostrate carcinoma. I was referred by Dr. Hemant Vadeyar, a surgeon who works at your esteemed hospital and is also a good friend of mine, to get my treatment done there. I had consulted the hospital's uro-oncologist Dr. Yuvaraja T. B., who lucidly explained to me what my condition is, the different options I can go for and also suggested what would be the best way to go about treating this.

Dr. T.B. Yuvaraja: Cancer Bladder- Robotic Radical Cystectomy and Neobladder

Mr. ABC, a 48years old smoker with complaints of blood in urine was investigated and found to have a tumour in his bladder. At his home town, as the tumor was very big, he was advised removal of his bladder surgically by oprn technique which would have also resulted in decreasing his sexual function and a permanent urinary opening (stoma) on his abdomen with urine collecting bag. The patient was devastated with the idea of losing potency at such a young age. When he came to us we evaluated him and he underwent surgery in a minimally invasive way using the robot in the form of robotic radical cystectomy and reconstructing entire new bladder with intestine.. The patient did recover well after the surgery and recovered his potency in 3 months to lead an active family life. He passes urine in a normal way and has no opening on his abdomen and his body image is preserved. He is extremely happy now.

Dr. T.B. Yuvaraja: Cancer Kidney- Robotic Partial Nephrectomy

Mrs. XYZ, a 52 years old female suffering from chronic kidney disease for a long time was found to have tumour in her kidney. She was advised removal of the tumour bearing kidney which put her into the risk of permanent dialysis in the future by open surgery. The outcome of the surgery with respect to permanent dialysis shocked her and went into depression. After multiple consultations she came to us where she underwent thorough evaluation. We advised her to undergo robotic partial nephrectomy which can save the kidney with minimal pain and scarring by robotic method. She underwent surgery in a minimally invasive way using the robot where only the tumour was removed saving the remaining kidney. She recovered well with no risk of future dialysis. After one year of surgery she is healthy with stable kidney function and enjoying an active life.
