Aligarh Muslim University

A team of surgeons at the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has made it to the Guinness Book of World Records for performing a delicate gallbladder surgery on a 244-day-old girl, breaking the previous record of such a surgery on a 271-day-old infant, PTI reports from Aligarh.

The team led by Dr Rizwan Ahmad Khan, chairperson of the Department of Pediatric Surgery, has earned its way into the Guinness Book of World Records for performing the laparoscopic cholecystectomy surgery on the youngest infant, an official statement released by AMU's Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College Hospital said.

"The authorities of the Guinness Book of World Records have officially communicated their acknowledgement of this record and have posted it on their official website," it said.

Khan said the infant was suffering from gallstone disease and performing the surgery had become a necessity if her life had to be saved.
