Three Pakistani surgeons have been credited by the book of Guinness World Record for removing the largest kidney ever from a human body on Saturday.
Dr. Abdul Rashid along with two other doctors, namely, Dr. Altaf Hussain and Dr. Mool Chand, removed a kidney that weighed 1.8 kg in Larkana, Pakistan, on January 26th from a 30-year-old patient named Waziran Mallah of Mehar.
The kidney was removed off the body since it was nonfunctional.
After the operation, Dr. Abdul Rashid sent the details of the operation as well as the weight of the kidney to the Guinness Book of World Records on March 16th, since the doctor has never seen such a large kidney, neither in his clinical practice nor has ever read about it in any book.
It took eight months by the Guinness World Record to confirm the entry of the surgery in the book and sent a recognition certificate to Dr. Abdul Rashid and his colleagues.
