I performed Pakistan’s first ever flexible endoscopic treatment for a large arachnoid cyst in the thoracic spinal cord.
Being the only one trained and expert to do these procedures in Pakistan, I seem to get the most complex and challenging cases. By using a flexible endoscope, which Shifa international has made available for me, I was able to perform the operation via a small laminectomy and connect all the cysts. The Patient was discharged home the next day with significant improvement, having presented with severe myelopathy.
Over the last year I have transformed the practice of neurosurgery in Pakistan, bringing it into the 21st century. Thanks to SHIFA international and my ongoing endeavours to bring the latest and best possible treatments to Pakistan on par with any international standards.
