Muscat Daily - - NATION - Our Cor­re­spon­dent

For the first time in the sul­tanate, The Royal Hos­pi­tal re­cently suc­ceeded in re­mov­ing the dam­aged cells in the pan­creas through la­paro­scopic ul­tra­sound on a pa­tient suf­fer­ing from se­vere necrotic pan­cre­ati­tis.

The surgery was per­formed by a med­i­cal team from The Royal Hos­pi­tal headed by Dr Hisham Ab­dul­lah al Da­hab, se­nior con­sul­tant in Gas­troen­terol­ogy, in co­op­er­a­tion with anaes­the­si­ol­o­gists and nurses.

Dr Hisham Ab­dul­lah al Da­hab pointed out that the in­ter­ven­tion is the lat­est in mod­ern medicine in the field of se­vere necrotic pan­cre­ati­tis.

The tech­nique has been in­tro­duced at The Royal Hos­pi­tal to keep pace with the lat­est global treat­ment meth­ods in var­i­ous med­i­cal fields.

The sur­gi­cal in­ter­ven­tion is char­ac­terised by the lack of side ef­fects; the pa­tient can re­turn to his/her daily life rou­tine af­ter three days.
