Dubai: In a first ever surgery of its kind in the UAE, a team of urologists from Dubai Hospital removed a pair of kidneys — each one bigger than the size of a watermelon — from the abdomen of a 56-year old patient, doctors said on Tuesday.

Ahmad Saeed


The doctors said they conducted the five-hour surgery on October 11 and the Emirati patient, Ahmad Saeed, has been discharged from the hospital.


The successful removal of the pair of kidneys weighing 13kg in total is being billed as the biggest kidneys removed anywhere in the world.


The hospital has applied to Guinness World Records as the kidneys weighed six and seven kilograms. Saeed, who is on dialysis, will be going abroad for kidney transplant surgery later, said a Dubai Health Authority spokesperson.
