Al-Hadba Al-Khadra General Hospital announced last week the resumption of artificial joint operations by conducting the first operations on a 33-year-old patient who had his pelvic joint replaced as a result of a fracture in the head of the femur, which caused a decrease in the length of this leg by about 3.5 cm.
Localisation of healthcare policy
The hospital explained that the step to resume work comes after a 10-year hiatus because of the completing the necessary maintenance in the Orthopaedic Operations Department. This, it added. Is part of the Ministry of Health’s interest in providing the necessary support to hospitals and health centres.
But, on a broader level, it comes as the current government’s localisation of healthcare policy, by providing healthcare locally, to a greater number of people and at a greater convenience to patients while saving patients and the state hundreds of millions in money spent abroad on healthcare.
