A team of surgeons from Sunrise Institute of Medical Sciences (SIMS) here led by Dr Hafeez Rahman has successfully removed the world's largest uterus (womb) weighing a giant 4.9 kg from the abdomen of a 49-year-old woman using keyhole surgery. According to hospital authorities today, this uterus is the world's biggest operated upon compared to previous record of 3.2 kg as listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. Dr Hafeez said '' We believe that this was perhaps the heaviest uterus removed and so we have decided to send the details of it and the surgery for entry into the Limca and Guinness book of World Records.'' Surgeon Hafeez, giving details of the surgery said, this kind of uterus in a woman's abdomen was rare and the pathological examination revealed it to be case of fibroid, a non-cancerous tumor of the uterus. The doctors had to conduct an operation called 'Laparoscopic hysterectomy' to get rid of the uterus of the patient.

The huge uterus was removed in a record 28 minutes with minimal blood loss,he said.
