Dhule (Maharashtra): A doctor in Maharashtra`s Dhule district has been awarded the Guinness record for removing a record number of 172,155 kidney stones from a single kidney.

I decided to call for a diamond worker, who regularly counts and verifies diamonds and teamed him up with one of my doctors," he said.Rawandale-Patil mentioned that they worked for three hours a day for a month to finish counting the stones."I then wrote to the Guinness Book of World Records and they asked me to send the stones and related documents. They verified it and wrote back to me in October telling me that I have made a record," the doctor said."I got the hard copy of the certificate only a couple of days back," he added.Rawandale-Patil said: "This is an important milestone for me and my institute. It is the combined effort of my team that could take this small town to an international level."IANS
