Bangladesh will create an example in treatment if gets opportunity: Health Minister
Health Minister Professor Dr. Samanta Lal Sen commented that the quality of doctors in Bangladesh is not lower than any other country in the world. He said that doctors cannot bring it up just because of lack of opportunity.
He said, if the doctors of Bangladesh are given the same opportunities as other developed countries of the world, these doctors can present their qualifications to the world.
On Saturday (February 10) morning, Health Minister Dr. Samant Lal Sen said that the successful treatment of Karmdema, a 23-year-old Bhutanese girl suffering from nose cancer, has been proved by Bangladeshi doctors that very soon people from abroad will come to Bangladesh in droves for treatment and Bangladesh has the ability to provide appropriate medical services to foreigners.
The Health Minister said that people of our country are regularly going abroad for treatment. Some are becoming destitute by spending a lot of money. But today we treated the patient named Karmdema who came for treatment from Bhutan, the patient has returned to normal condition after successful treatment. She was told from India and many other countries that this treatment is not possible. But we were able to complete his treatment successfully in Bangladesh. The patient can now leave for Bhutan in good condition.
A 23-year-old patient from Bhutan Dr. Samant Lal Sen said, treating this patient was a very difficult and complicated task. She had previously undergone operations in India and Bhutan and also received treatment in Thailand. But as her previous operations were not successful, the next operation was very complicated, risky and time consuming. Because of this, many countries could not dare to do another operation to her. We took it as a question of the image of the country and started this operation by making a medical board. It was quite a challenging to cut the flesh and blood from other parts of the body and attach it to the nose after a long time and maintain the blood circulation in the nose. Our doctors have successfully done that difficult task. Undoubtedly, this is a great achievement for the medical standard of our country.
He said, after this success, discussions are being held with us about setting up a 15-bed burn institute in Bhutan as well. In Nepal and other SAARC countries, such complex medical services are also being discussed through our doctors, including treatment of foreign patients in the country's hospitals.
At the conference, Ambassador of Bhutan, Ring Cheng Kueng Sil, said that by successfully completing this complex operation, Bangladesh has shown what other countries in the world could not do. When other countries of the world said this operation was not possible, Bangladesh said it was possible and Bangladesh made the impossible possible.
