H.E. Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Saidi, Minister of Health honored on Monday at his office Prof. Felipe Manir, specialized in performing the complex operations of the upper respiratory airways in the presence of H.E. Dr. Mohammed bin Saif Al-Hosni, Undersecretary of Ministry of Health for Health affairs.
Prof. Felipe is visiting the Sultanate for eight consecutive years to perform complex operations for the upper respiratory airways for a large number of patients.
Prof. Felipe has carried out surgical operations for about 1000 patients during the past seven years.
During this week, Prof. Felipe will observe and perform surgical operations for about (40) patients. The professor also trained the medical staff of the ENT department in Al-Nahda Hospital in order to carry out such operations.
It is worth mentioning that performing such complicated operations in the Sultanate led to not sending patients who suffer from upper respiratory airways obstruction for treatment abroad, therefore reducing the travel costs and burden.
