Know Your Doctor

Dr. Rajesh Taneja is Senior Consultant Urologist, Andrologist and Robotic Surgeon. One of the very few urologists in the country to have acquired the technique of Holmium Laser Enucleation of prostate (HoLEP).
Dr. Rajesh Taneja is one of the very few pioneer urologists, trained in Robotic Surgical system (Da Vinci_Si) in the country, performing Robotic assisted urological surgeries with excellent results comparable to the best in the world. He is the only Asian urologist to treat Interstitial Cystitis (Bladder Pain Syndrome) using holmium laser with very good results. He has also written a book in the same. Dr. Taneja was also recognised as a “Proctor” for robotic surgery programs to assist in the training of newly inducted robotic surgeons.
Holmium Laser Enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) is a cutting edge option in contrast to the standard Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP) technique for bladder surge hindrance because of BPH. It requires a brief time of hospitalization and a sedative. A catheter (a cylinder which depletes the bladder) is likewise required for 1-2 days until the urine clears. Patients are encouraged to take life calmly and to abstain from stressing or hard work for about a month after the medical procedure.

A young male of 19 years, who presented with jaundice and fever due to stones in the ducts of his transplanted liver, was treated by ‘Percutaneous Transhepatic Cholangio lithotripsy’ using a technique similar to ‘Percutaneous Nephrosto Lithotripsy’ (PCNL).The case was a poor surgical risk as his first liver transplant had failed and he already had a surgery for revision of biliary obstruction second transplant. He was on immunosuppression and had developed drug induced Diabetes Mellitus. Such a procedure has never been documented earlier in published medical literature. The patient was discharged in good health following the procedure and is leading a near normal life.
