Babcock University recently performed its first heart surgery.
Babcock University achieved another milestone on 14th of October, 2015, as the first heart surgery was performed there by its doctors.
The first beneficiary of this feat in the history of the university is a 34-year-old woman who brimmed with exceptional spirit as she calmly walked through the door with gaiety into the theatre for a life saving venture in the human hands of cardio thoracic surgeons from Babcock Univeristy: Professor Kamar Adeleke, Dr. Michael Sanusi, Dr. Mudashiru Lawal and Dr. Edward Anderson, all resident doctors, under God’s divine care. Dr. Anderson led the team for the operations.
Those were not the only ones who were part of the epoch-making exercise. There were other 15 critical care personnel in the operating theatre to provide specific required services. They included perfussionists, cardiac operations nurses, internists and anesthesiologists.
Professor Iheanyichukwu Okoro a surgeon and senior vice president of Babcock University, and Mr. Olukunle Iyanda, Vice president, development and strategy also of Babcock University, said the medical feat couldn’t have happened at a better time than this.
