Indeed, there is light and despite of the current dark news about Covid-19.
Dr. Tamer El Zalabany, Consultant General and Laparoscopic surgeon; Lecturer at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, has completely removed recurrent cancerous tumor, adherent to the abdominal wall muscles, colon and urinary bladder, with a complete restoration of the abdominal wall and repair of the colon and urinary bladder, for a 45-year-old female European national.
The surgery took 6 hours to excise this tumor, which weighed about four kilograms and reached a size of 35 cm x 27 cm x 20 cm.
The patient was discharged from hospital in good health and is currently fully recovered from surgery and leading a normal life.
All the surgeons that the patient had consulted in the region, decided to transfer her to the National Institute in Cairo.
Note that this major surgery of a special and meticulous nature was performed for the first time in the Red Sea Governorate in Hurghada, which is considered a gesture of hope for the citizens of Upper Egypt Governorates and the Red Sea instead of having to endure the hardship of traveling to Cairo or outside Egypt to perform this type of rare surgical procedures.
