Doctors at Paras Global Hospital Darbhanga yet again created medical history in the Mithila region by successfully treating a woman of acute jaundice and stone in her bile duct. The doctors used the latest technology of Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and relieved the 44 yr old woman of pain and discomfort.
According to the reports, 44 yr old, Ms Meenu was suffering from severe pain in the abdomen area and was suffering from high grade fever. Her skin was also yellow and she complained of fatigue and loss of appetite. She consulted numerous doctors and also opted for alternative medicine for her treatment, however nothing could help her condition. Post recommendations from relatives, she decided to consult the gastroenterologist at Paras Hospital Darbhanga – the leading private hospital of Mithila region specialising in all gastro related ailments such as jaundice, cirrhosis, pancreatitis and stomach issues.
At Paras Hospital Darbhanga, Ms Meenu consulted, Dr Sharad Kumar, leading gastroenterologist of the region. Dr. Sharad Kumar Jha is an eminent medical gastroenterologist of Bihar. With over 5 years of elaborate experience, he specializes in Hepatobiliary, pancreatic and colonic diseases. His areas of expertise include diagnosis and management of Jaundice, Hepatitis, Peptic Ulcer Disease, Abdominal pain & Burning, GI Bleeding, and Bloating. Over the years he has successfully treated numerous patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, chronic diarrhea, acute pancreatitis and celiac disease. His area of super specialization also includes GI Cancers, Esophageal Cancer, Gastric and Colonic Cancer.
Dr Sharad Kumar shares, “When Meenu was brought to the hospital, she was suffering from immense pain. She was also suffering from jaundice and her serum bilirubin was 18. The patient’s blood pressure was also very low when she was admitted to the hospital. During the investigation it was found that she had stone in her bile duct measuring one cm. Taking her health condition into consideration we recommended ERCP technique for treatment.”
He further adds, “In ERCP technique no surgery is required but a bendable, lighted tube (endoscope) about the thickness of your index finger is placed through your mouth. The procedure took only half an hour and after the operation Meenu’s serum bilirubin came to normal at 5. She was feeling alright so she was discharged from the hospital the next day itself.”
Meenu’s husband highlighted that they were struggling from the disease since long time and no remedy was being found for the same. However, it was Paras Global Hospital Darbhanga where her wife was treated successfully by Dr Kumar and now she is healthy.
