Pakistani surgeon breaks US doctor’s Guinness world record

RAWALPINDI: The Guinness Book of World Record management has certified that a Pakistani consultant surgeon Dr Naeem Taj achieved a new record after ‘removing gall stones and gall bladder from the youngest person ever’.

Dr. M. Naeem Taj, a talented general and laparoscopic surgeon  had made it to the Guinness Book of World Records first time in 2012 January by successfully removing the world’s longest gall bladder through a 1 centimetre umbilical incision.

Dr Naeem Taj works at the Capital Development Authority Hospital (CDAH) in Islamabad.

The youngest person Muhammad Saffiullah is four-year-old, who had an operation on September 27, 2014 to have his gallstones and gall bladder removed.

“The previous record was set by  Danylle Otteni of USA who was five years old at the time she had her gall bladder and gallstones removed in Philadelphia, USA on October 14, 2007.”

Taj also had his name registered in the Guinness Book in the past by removing the longest gall bladder through a laparoscopic procedure.

He has also operated the oldest woman with gall stones.

“No age is exempted from gall stones and it is better to prevent complications by removing it early on before it causes serious complications which can be life threatening, remarked Taj.

The Guinness Book of World Records had acknowledged and registered Dr. Naeem Taj’s name and has issued a certificate which was awarded to him by the CDA chairman in 2012.

Dr. Naeem Taj performed the laparoscopic cholecystectomy of Rasheeda Bibi on June 14, 2011. The surgery was unique in the respect that the world’s longest gall bladder (measuring 25.5 cms) was removed through a 1cm umbilical incision.
