The surgeons from Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi, removed an enormous two stone mass from Mr. Saidalavi, 46, who was diagnosed with Elephantiasis. A team of five surgeons and three anesthetists took action and the mass was removed during a five-hour operation. Dr. Subramania Iyer, head of plastic and reconstructive surgery said: "It was a complex surgery. Several complications could rise because of the patient being overweight and his inability to walk."
