Well done to our Acibadem Healthcare team for being the first private hospital in Turkey to perform this challenging and highly complex surgery on 12 August after seven months of careful planning.
Cameroon sisters Elizabeth and Mary were born in July 2020 conjoined at their hips. They not only shared physical body parts, but also some parts of their body system such as the spinal cord, digestive tract and neurovascular structure.
The twins were brought to Acibadem Altunizade Hospital at nine months old where a multi-specialty team of 60 healthcare professionals from urology, radiology, physical medicine, intensive care unit, rehabilitation and cardiovascular surgery saw to their treatment, under the leadership of specialty professors at the hospital.
Leaving no stone unturned, they even partnered with the bio-design team from Acıbadem University to create a three-dimensional dummy of the twins so that they could plan the surgical details prior to the actual procedure.
No words could describe the joy of their parents. “Seeing them move freely in their beds in their own rooms, we felt like we were at the top of the world. We really appreciate all the doctors and healthcare professionals at Acibadem Healthcare Group. They took great care of us and gave us the confidence to go ahead with this challenging procedure.”
Taking the opportunity of global borders reopening, leaders of our laboratory units across the world gathered in Singapore for the inaugural IHH Laboratories Strategic Retreat that was held over 2 days on 18 & 19 July.
For the second year running, IHH colleagues across the globe came together in their respective markets to celebrate and rejoice in the IHH Service Week which ran from 11 to 15 April 2022.
IHH Healthcare started 2022 on an exciting note by hosting its first hybrid Global Town Hall on 27 January, with more than 100 staff in attendance at the webcast venue in Malaysia.
Who says festive holidays are reserved for celebrations with family and friends? Senior Nurse from Prince Court Medical Centre Chu Tai Feng chose to give back to the community, by volunteering with IHH Malaysia’s medical outreach team
