EGHs neuro department performs groundbreaking operations in Gaza
A leading Palestinian neurosurgeon has performed several groundbreaking operations in Gaza. Dr.Mohammed Al Houbi, who performed the operations in Gaza’s European Hospital, performed surgery for severe bleeding in the frontal lobe, brain tumor, and multi-chamber hydrocephalus.
Al Houbi said that” this operation is performed for the first time in the Gaza Strip, and it is considered complicated because the tumor is located near the brain stem and puts pressure on it, causing hydrocephalus”.
Dr. Al Houbi praised the skills of the physicians who assisted him during the operations, which went well, despite the lack of equipment and resources.
Head of the Neurosurgery Department, Dr. Nidal Abu Hadros spoke of the importance of the contributions that can be made by skilled Palestinian physicians and praised the skills of the local team who assisted him during the operations, which went well, despite the lack of equipment and resources.
