A Saudi doctor performs the first-of-its-kind surgery in Egypt on an infant.

 

Professor and Consultant of Pediatric Urology at the College of Medicine and Medical City at King Saud University, Dr. Hamdan Al-Hazmi, has successfully performed a laparoscopic implantation of the ureter into the bladder. The successful operation is the Egypt's first ever surgery dealing with this condition during a workshop accompanying the 37th Conference of the Urology Department at Tanta University in Egypt.

 

According to Prof. Hamdan Al-Hazmi, this is one of the delicate surgeries. It started to be performed in the Kingdom in 2017 and is being conducted for the first time in Egypt. The surgery was a live streaming broadcast to the participants in the workshop. He pointed out that the laparoscopy was used into the bladder and explained that the advantage of this type of surgery is that it is a minimally invasive surgery compared to open surgery. It enables a high degree of accuracy and safety, is less painful, requires smaller doses of pain relievers, and has a shorter length of hospital stay. The surgical scars fade and are almost invisible over time, with a 95 percent success rate. 

 

Prof. Al-Hazmi expressed his pride and praised the outstanding achievements achieved at all levels in Saudi Arabia as a result of the ambitious and strategic vision of the wise leadership represented in the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 to support the health education sector and medical services and work on health projects that accommodate the nation’s needs of medical facilities and competencies—noting that The Kingdom - by the grace of God - has become one of the advanced countries in providing health services, medical education, and scientific research.
