New Consultants at KIH
Maj. Gen. Prof. Dr. Maqbool Ahmed (Retd)
Renowned General and Laparoscopic Surgeon Dr. Maqbool Ahmed joins Kulsum International Hospital. He has served in Pakistan Army on senior ranks including Professor of Surgery – Army Medical College, Director General (General Surgery), Pakistan Army and Head of General Surgery – Military Hospital and Combined Military Hospital (Rawalpindi). He was also deputed on UN Pakistan Medical Mission to Somalia. He has extensive experience in General and Laparoscopic Surgery specifically Redo Surgery and complicated cases. He is of the view that general surgery is on the “cutting edge” because it continues to reinvent itself to the benefit of the patient. According to him, due to accessibility of high-tech instrumentation and advanced technology, procedures are now replaced with minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques that often reduce pain, accelerate recuperation and reduce cost without sacrificing good outcomes. We choose the procedures we feel most comfortable with to provide services for our patients, he adds. Dr. Maqbool Ahmed is a valuable addition to KIH.
