30 January 2018

By Allah's Grace, King Khaled Hospital – Hafr al-Batin has successfully conducted 11  patellofemoral arthroplasties without any complications; as the orthopedics team employs the state-of-the-art femoral anthroplasty technology using Tifanium.

This week, this technology has been used for a patient suffering from 3rd class chronic patellofemoral roughness. Though he has used all conservative treatments, his chronic pains persisted. However, the cutting-edge surgery has been successful to end his suffering, thank Allah.

From his part, the medical team follows up earlier patients who had the same surgery, and finds out that they have had no cmplications by Allah's Grace.

It is noteworthy that the MOH has launched a daily specialization-based e-Waiting List for surgical operations on its online portal. The list features the MOH's hospitals, along with surgical specializations and corresponding waiting days respectively.

The list also includes five levels of waiting days, from one to 180 days.
By launching this initiative, MOH aims to update all patients and beneficiaries of services provided by its health facilities on the developmental efforts to boost performance levels, and to provide high quality services to satisfy and meet the health needs of citizens.​
