UTH Hits Another Medical Landmark

Dr. Kachinga Sichizya writes:


A team of Neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons combined efforts to successfully remove a tumour from the middle of the brain through the nose, a complex operation called Transnasal Trans-sphenoidal approach. The operation which began at 1400hrs only ended at 2130hrs.

This marks the FIRST time that this operation has been conducted by a group made purely of indigenous Zambian surgeons. We celebrate this victory. The patient has woken up and is stable.

I am excited at this new development. Many patients are on the waiting list for this operation while a luck few have gone to India for surgery. That is going to be history now. We are thankful to our friend Patrick Cameron for buying this equipment which is going to impact many lives.

Congratulations to all who participated in the operation, including Dr Harrison Phiri, Dr Brian Mwila and Dr Peter Mushenya and Mildred Nakazwe-Chila, Dr Nashati and sister Chileshe, Charity, ba Mariya and Amon Silomba.

Glory to God

    It’s great to see a combination of tribes come together as Doctors to achieve this. It’s possible when you respect each other’s differences while sharing similarities.

    • Tuli Bantu

      Thanks doctors may the good Lord richly bless you all, but am surprised, somebody is looking at which tribes are these doctors from, why do you like segregation among the people, this one is a bemba no this one is a Tonga, you won’t develop like that, that is why in our country we are too primitive in terms of development because such thinking, even Whites they came together nor matter which tribe they fall, to built the plane and make it fly it was not an easy thing, please learn to love each other we are all Zambians and we share same value same money same national anthem, never theless I congratulate you doctors.

    Can those Doctors operate on Topstar( Star time 60% + total control/Mr Bible Esau Znbc 40% the birth right gone) we need Znbc 70% + fatal control. Otherwise Zesco will be on the sick bed in the name TopZesco. These deadly tumor like diseases are coming on national asserts companies became of sweet soft free like loans loans( you shall start paying after 5 Years). How give more than 50% to foreigners in a national asserts partnerships . Any Nation which which want to developed can not allow that…unless you are joking with development. Soon Zesco will be on a sick bed in the name of TopZesco

    We have not had a follow up on tgis patient but am told he has not made it. MHSRIP. Anyway I had similar surgery 5 weeks ago in India and according to my experience both from UTH and the Indian hospital we still have a long way to go. In my case surgery was successful am still healing but am back to my normal life and even going for work.
