Successful Treatment of End-Stage Kidney Disease Patient for Cancer of Tongue at American Oncology Institute (AOI) in Jammu

Jammu, 18th April 2024 – American Oncology Institute (AOI) in Jammu has successfully treated a 56-year-old male patient suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Stage V, who was diagnosed with Cancer of the Tongue. Despite the challenges posed by his medical condition, the patient underwent a complex surgical procedure and has made a remarkable recovery.

The patient, who was on weekly dialysis for CKD, presented with a growth on his tongue. Following a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis, the medical team at AOI in Jammu determined that the growth was cancerous. Despite the patient's elevated S. creatinine levels, the anesthesia team cleared him for surgery, recognizing the high risk involved.

The surgical procedure involved the removal of the cancerous portion of the tongue, along with the bilateral removal of neck nodes. Additionally, reconstruction of the tongue defect was successfully performed during the same surgical setting. Following the surgery, the patient underwent multiple sessions of haemodialysis to manage his kidney condition.

Despite the complexity of the procedure and the patient's underlying health issues, he made a remarkable recovery. After one week of post-operative care, the patient was discharged from AOI. He is now able to speak and swallow with ease, marking a significant improvement in his quality of life.

Dr [Treating Doctor's Name], [Position] at AOI Jammu, commented, "Despite being diagnosed with advanced kidney disease and tongue cancer, this patient showed incredible strength and determination. Reconstructing the tongue defect was a critical aspect of the treatment, and we are pleased to report that the procedure was a success. Through meticulous surgical technique and diligent post-operative care, we were able to restore vital functions such as speech and swallowing. This achievement underscores the collaborative efforts of the healthcare team and the patient's commitment to their recovery."

Dr Neeraj Bishnoi, Regional Chief Operating Officer, AOI Jammu, added, "The successful treatment of this patient exemplifies AOI's commitment to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to patients with complex medical conditions. We are proud to have played a role in improving the patient's health and well-being. At AOI, we not only transform lives with innovative approach but also set a new standard of excellence in healthcare."
