ISLAMABAD:


The Guinness Book of World record has issued surgeon Dr Naeem Taj of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) Hospital a certificate recognising his recent achievement of removing the world’s longest gall bladder through laparoscopy.


Rasheeda Bibi, 70, was operated on at CDA hospital by Dr Naeem Taj, who removed a 25.5 cm long gall bladder through a one cm incision. The previous record was of an Indian doctor, who had removed a 24 cm gallbladder through open surgery.

Addressing a ceremony in honour of the surgeon, CDA Chairman Farkhand Iqbal called Taj’s achievement an honour for the Capital Hospital and the entire nation. Capital Hospital Executive Director Dr Saddique Akbar said that he was proud of Dr Taj and expected the talented surgeon to add much more to his credits.

Dr Taj has also performed other distinctive surgeries, including oldest and youngest patients, longest appendix removed from a child and maximum numbers of stones removed from a gall bladder. Dr Taj dedicated his award to the nation, saying that if given opportunities, resources and encouragement, we can achieve even greater heights.
