Palestinian surgeons perform rare operation at Hebron public hospital

HEBRON (Ma'an) – Palestinian surgeons at Alia public hospital in Hebron in the southern West Bank on Wednesday successfully repaired a very uncommon skull deformity of a baby.

Dr. Imad Rashid, the neurosurgeon who performed the operation, confirmed to Ma'an the rarity of the case, highlighting that he and his team removed a deformity three times the size of the infant's skull. The baby has completely recovered, he added.

"The surgery is a source of pride given the limited equipment we have," said director of Alia Hospital Dr. Walid Zalloum, boasting of the skillful surgeons and nurses the hospital has.

"From time to time, we perform qualitative surgeries at the hospital which serves more than 800,000 people in the Hebron district, in addition to those who come from other Palestinian districts."

The team of surgeons consisted of neurosurgeon Imad Rashid, pediatric surgeon Hasan Breijiyya and anesthetist Imad Shuroof.
