For the first time in history of Pakistan, successful brain tumour surgery without anesthesia held in Pakistan

LAHORE – A local government hospital has carried out a successful surgery of a cancer patient without general anaesthesia for the first time, showing the positive changes towards treatment facilities and technologies in Pakistan.

A team of neurosurgeons headed by Professor Dr. Rizwan Masood Butt removed more than 90 percent tumour of a patient during the historic brain surgery. It was held at the Lahore General Hospital, local media reported.

Dilawar, 40, visited the hospital around two weeks ago, complaining about a headache. When he underwent a medical examination, the doctors diagnosed him with a brain tumour.

The surgeons, later, decided to operate the patient in order to cure him. So, the team comprising 8-10 doctors conducted the surgery which remained successful.

The patient, who is a resident of Narowal, is now stable. Expressing his feelings, Dilawar said that the surgery was smooth enough that there was no pain.
