The Royal Hospital has succeeded in removing damaged cells in the pancreas with a new technique used for the first time in the Sultanate called ‘laparoscopic ultrasound’ for a patient suffering from a severe necrotic pancreatitis.
The surgical intervention was performed by a medical team from the Royal Hospital that was headed by Dr. Hisham Abdullah Al-Dahab, Senior Consultant in Gastroenterology and in cooperation with the anesthesiologists and nurses.
