The 50-year old patient arrived at the hospital complaining about severe pain in her lower abdomen. After she was examined, the doctors found the large tumor that required immediate surgical intervention.
This kind of surgery requires particularly special skills, and the success of the operation underlies the hospital’s efforts to provide high quality service to reduce the number of cases that travel to Cairo seeking a kind of medical attention unavailable in their cities.
