Mercy James Centre at Queen’s Hospital successfully operates on co-joined twins
The recently constructed Mercy James Centre under the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital (QECH) has done its major operation by separating conjoined twins.
The centre was constructed by pop star Madonna who named the centre after one of four Malawian children she adopted, Mercy James.
Officials at QECH have confirmed of the operation which was done by Dr Eric Borgestien and his pediatric surgical team.
QECH Hospital Administrator, Dr Themba Mhango said the operation was successful.
“The operation went smoothly and the children are currently admitted in the Pediatric ICU,” said Mhango.
He could not however disclose the identities of the twins.
This is first time to occur in the history of Malawi for any hospital to conduct such operation which is giving hope to the nation that now the solution to complicated pediatric medical operations will be done locally.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
No doubt politics are the last thing on this mother’s mind right now. Thanks be to God that her babies could get this surgery at all, and that they are doing well. Well done, Malawi!!
Peter Mtharika is a headless chicken who continues to steal money meant for drugs and equipment in our hospitals. SHAME!!
The building looks like most old structures of Johannesburg city, but we are told it is newly built. The architecture is very poor. Our architects, please lets design with time so that our city looks beautiful.
What have you built for your country.. Idiot
NEWS WORTH TALKING ABOUT NOT THAT CHAPONDA;NANKHUMWA ;GOODAL AND GURUS ARE PACKING MONIES IN SACKS
Lets talk about your shallow mind, you ratchet simpleton.
One person like Madonna is able to deliver miracles to Malawi in form of school blocks and modern hospital wing with high tech equipment saving lives. A whole government can hardly provide much needed drugs in hospitals. Our politicians should really bury their heads in shame.
