Dr Arvinder Singh Soin, chief liver transplant surgeon from Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon conducted a liver transplant camp along with some Pakistani doctors at Karachi’s Dr Ziauddin Hospital under the peace clinic programme. Doctors from across the border shared their expertise to help patients specifically in areas of kidney and liver transplant.
Through this camp Dr Soin invited the Ziauddin hospital to send their doctors and paramedics for training to Medanta Hospital. The initiative was taken up by the hospital and the team Members in order to grow a new seed of relationship between both the countries. The camp was organised as part of a peace programme between the two hospitals and the management of Ziauddin Hospital also showed keen interest in inviting more doctors from India, to share their expertise and experiences with them in the field of liver transplant.
This initiative might help Pakistan’s healthcare industry to make their patients avail world class treatment in their home country. Talks are being held to eventually set-up a combined kidney-liver ward at Ziauddin Hospital Pakistan.
