Dr. Shalin Dubey, Laparoscopic surgeon, Apollo Hospitals - Navi Mumbai performed inguinal hernia surgery on a 101-year-old patient, the oldest patient to undergo the surgery

Date: 30 Jan 18

The patient, a 101-year-old gentleman had complaints of pain and irreducible swelling in his right groin. Though he had this swelling for many years, it was painless to start with, until recently, when he noticed lot of discomfort. He had no medical history, was not on any medication even at this age and used to walk for a kilometre every day before his hernia started hurting him. He started developing vomiting after meals and pain was making it difficult for him to even walk. He had consulted several doctors in past about his hernia but was declared unfit for surgery in view of his age.

Dr. Shalin Dubey with his expert team and the infrastructure at Apollo Hospitals, Navi Mumbai organised a joint clinic to discuss the case and proceeded with the inguinal hernia surgery. The patient was discharged the very next day and left the hospital, walking by himself.

He is the oldest patient reported in medical literature to undergo inguinal hernia surgery and we are privileged at Apollo to have treated him.
