Colleen Marshall Surgery/ Kidney
Marshall discovered that she had stage-four kidney nephrosis after attempting to donate her kidney to her cousin, Karen who is on dialysis. This was found out after medical tests for the donation were done on her. The blockage had caused 40% of her left kidney function.
Fortunately, a robotic urologic surgeon at OhioHealth Dublin Methodist Hospital, Dr. Ronney Abaza, MD performed surgery on her with the assistance of the hospital’s single-port robot. On a side note, Dr. Abaza is one of the initial five doctors in the world to perform over five thousand robotic surgeries.
“So, the traditional way to do this operation, again, before the era of minimally invasive surgery, would’ve been to have an incision like this, what we call a subcostal incision. Again, cutting through several layers of muscle, very painful, in the hospital for several days, maybe even a week. We don’t have enough organs for people who need them, so people are dying on a waiting list, waiting to get a kidney or another organ,” voiced Abaza.
