the Royal Commission in Jubail Health Services Program Medical Team has recently successfully performed a complicated surgery to remove a benign tumor via surgical scope for a 50 years old female Saudi Patient.
This type of surgeries is considered complicated, given that the patient had gone a Hysterectomy operation at another hospital several years ago. The tumor consisted of a large blood collection that led to severe chronic pain and recurrent urinal tract infections that affected the ureter and the right kidney.
Immediately, the medical team under the leadership of Consultant of Gynecology and Surgical Scopes Dr. Dalia Mubarak Al Hamdan and with participation of a General Surgery and Scopes Consultant, a Gynecology Specialist, a Urinary Tract Surgery Consultant, an Anesthesia Consultant and a team of Nurses set a surgical treatment plan that included accurate laboratory testing, CT scans and MRIs which showed the presence of a large blood sac in the uterus area which was discovered after breaking down to serous fluids.
Consequently, the medical team decided to perform the operation by the surgical scope rather than regular scalpel surgeries and was able to remove all intestinal adhesions that surrounded the large sac which weighed one and a half kilograms. Then the sac which caused the patient’s suffering for over 8 years was removed. The patient was kept under observation for 4 days to ensure her wellbeing and then left the hospital safe and sound by Allah’s willing. The patient extended her thanks and gratitude to the medical team.
On her part, Consultant of Gynecology and Surgical Scopes Dr. Dalia Mubarak Al Hamdan said that the Royal Commission in Jubail Health Services Program provision of modern surgical scopes which are considered one of medicine’s advanced technologies is a very positive step as it enables one day surgeries, and short stay surgeries which include removal of ovarian cysts, removal of uterine fibroid, removal of uterus and ovaries, removal of extra uterine pregnancy, diagnosis of some recurrent miscarriage and delayed pregnancy which are considered some of the most advanced operator that are regularly in demand by a large segment of women.
Dr. Al Hamdan appreciated the quality of the modern medical equipment made available by the Health Services Program and the efforts of the medical team which lead to the success of the surgery.
It is worth mentioning that the Health Services Program has lately recruited a number of female specialists and consultants with advanced degrees in the field of Gynecology raising the total number of doctors in that specialty to 18 for the comfort and wellbeing of the patients.
