HEALTH MINISTRY TO HOST OTOLARYNGOLOGY CONFERENCE
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
