Once again, the NMC GYN/Surgery team at NMC Speciality Hospital has performed a remarkably unique operation. The patient was a 40-year-old Asian woman who had presented to the emergency department at NMC complaining of acute abdominal pain. She was evaluated with necessary investigations and immediate surgery planned. The team consisted of Dr. Simon Morkas (French qualified specialist Gyn/Obs) and Dr. Faris Alaswad (FRCS specialist surgeon). Surgery was performed and a 4.5 kg tumor was removed from her abdomen. The procedure was especially difficult as the tumor was firmly adherent to the bowel and bladder. The ovaries were able to be spared. The patient recovered well after surgery and was sent home in 48 hours. Thanks to the efforts of the surgeons, anesthetists, nurses, and the rest of the team.
