Sri Lankan Doctors Remove World’s Largest Kidney Stone from 62-Years Old Person

Military physicians from Sri Lanka revealed a noteworthy medical accomplishment on Wednesday. Canistus Coonge, a 62-year-old ex-sergeant, had the largest kidney stone in the world that was successfully removed. This enormous rock had a weight of 801 grams (28.25 ounces) and a staggering length of 13.37 centimeters (5.26 inches).

Since 2020, Coonge had been experiencing stomach pain, and the kidney stone had gotten so big that it was blocking his kidney. On June 1, he had surgery at the Colombo Army Hospital. The procedure was a complete success, and the stone was completely removed.

The previous record-breaking kidney stone, weighing 620 grams, was set by a patient in Pakistan in 2008. Guinness World Records has formally acknowledged and verified the accomplishment.

The surgical procedure was directed by Dr. Sutharshan, a skilled army surgeon who emphasized how crucial it is that Coonge’s kidney is operating normally. When minerals and salts in the kidney crystallize, kidney stones are created. If kidney stones become too large, they can cause excruciating pain as well as other problems.

This exceptional case serves as an important reminder of the value of early kidney stone detection and treatment. It’s critical to seek prompt medical attention from a doctor if you experience any symptoms or discomfort.
