The Min­istry of Health (MoH) is set to host on Thursday a sur­gi­cal con­fer­ence deal­ing with Oto­laryn­gol­ogy, an event ex­pected to fea­ture Arab and in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pa­tion. In a press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day, honorary head of the con­fer­ence and head of the ENT depart­ment at Zain Hospi­tal Dr Sheikh Basel Al-Sabah said that a con­tin­gent of 10 doc­tors from the United States, Canada, Ger­many, Greece and other na­tions, will take part in the con­fer­ence.

More­over, he noted that the two-day con­fer­ence will at­tract 11 for­eign vis­i­tors, all of whom will con­duct im­promptu sur­gi­cal oper­a­tions and hold in­for­ma­tive lec­tures. On the con­fer­ence, Dr Sheikh Basel added that it also in­cludes three work­shops that tackle oto­laryn­go­log­i­cal surg­eries, adding that Zain Hospi­tal is in the process of con­duct­ing 15 in­tri­cate sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures, an ef­fort to curb the in­creas­ing num­ber of pa­tients seek­ing treat­ment abroad.

Mean­while, head of the con­fer­ence Dr Mut­laq AlSay­han said that the con­fer­ence will show­case Kuwaiti med­i­cal prow­ess, adding that it pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for the ex­change of know-how. He also un­der­scored that Kuwait is in need of such events due to the per­va­sive­ness of oto­laryn­go­log­i­cal dis­eases. The MoH rou­tinely or­ga­nizes such events in ef­forts to bring lo­cal hos­pi­tals at par with in­ter­na­tional stan­dards. — KUNA
