By Allah’s Grace, a medical team at Prince Mutaib Bin Abdul Aziz Hospital - Sakaka has successfully done a globally rare surgery on a 54-year-old patient, who was referred by a health center suffering from a sebaceous cyst. After due tests, he was diagnosed with lumbar hernia in his loin, a globally rare case. So, the team conducted a surgery whereby a prosthetic mesh was used to fix the hernia.
As well, last month, the hospital completed a number of development projects, including the reception points of emergency, ambulatory sections, the radiology division, as well as completion of IV solutions project. Also, a special passage for inpatients has been made to transport them to the outpatient clinics.
