US Surgeons Arrive in the Gaza Strip for Advanced Surgical Operations

[ 28/03/2011 - 04:26 PM ]


The Shuhada al-Aqsa hospital in Gaza has received a delegation of American surgical specialists from the University of California in a bid to cover some of the medical deficit in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The urologists are scheduled to remain in the Strip to carry out advanced surgical operations over the next five days and have already taken necessary tests ahead of the operations.

According to the hospital's administration, the Gaza health ministry puts forth phenomenal efforts to regularly bring medical delegations to the Strip and elicit medical skills needed by local patients and increase the experience of local staff.

The Strip has suffered a sharp medical crisis as Israel maintains a economic blockade on the region.
