Muscat: A rare tumour has been extracted by a team of Omani doctors at Al Nahda Hospital.

The medical team for facial and maxillofacial surgery in addition to ear, nose, and throat, surgeons at Al Nahda Hospital managed to remove a rare tumour from a patient. The tumour was attached to the skull cavity at the bottom of the temporal skull.

The Omani medical team consisted of Dr. Salma Al Shaibani First Consultant of Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery, Dr. Ahmed Al Hashimi First Consultant of Face and Jaw Surgery, Dr. Faisal Al Kalbani, Dr. Nour Al Saadi, Dr. Fatima Al Yaarbi, Dr. Hamoud Al-Meslihi and Dr. Abdullah Al Bakri.

The surgery was successful due to a temporary and thoughtful surgical separation of the extremities of the face and lower jaw by the surgeons.



The patient was transferred to Nahda Hospital due to chronic pain in the right side of the face after he complained he was unable to open his mouth.
