The Tripoli-based Libyan Ministry of Health reported yesterday that fifty-seven surgeries were performed, including major ones, in the Department of Orthopaedics at Al-Mahjoub General Hospital in Misrata, during the first half of this year.
The Ministry said this came within the framework of implementing the twinning agreement concluded by the hospital with the Misrata Medical Centre.
The joint medical team between the two medical institutions conducted surgical interventions for:
- Twenty-five cases requiring knee joint replacement.
- Ten cases requiring pelvic joint replacement.
- Twelve cases requiring mid-pelvic joint replacement.
- Ten other cases that require surgeries to straighten the knee.
The Director of Al-Mahjoub General Hospital, Mohamed Abu Snaina, stated that this agreement aims to enable citizens living in the western city of Misrata to benefit from the services of specialist doctors at the Misrata Medical Center, as well as to enable doctors working in Al-Mahjoub Hospital to gain new expertise and techniques in treating various diseases.
