Doctors at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre has successfully performed India’s first Megaprosthesis Fixation for femur and Laparoscopic Radical nephrectomy as a single stage surgery through a Multimodal approach. A 54-year-old female from Assam visited the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre on June 13, 2021. She had sustained fracture of her left thigh bone and suffered a trivial injury two months ago, after which she was bedridden and completely immobile. On evaluation and a biopsy, she was diagnosed with metastatic left renal cell carcinoma which is a cancerous lesion of the kidney. It is a type of metastasis in which cancer cells from the original (primary) tumor travel through the body and form a small number of new tumors (metastatic tumors) in other parts of the body. Specialists at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre planned for surgical resection of the tumor in the thigh bone and the removal of the affected kidney through minimally invasive methods to stabilize the patient and get her to walk again.
