War Doctor Heroes: Meet Dr Omar

This is Omar. He is an orthopaedic surgeon in Iraq. He came on one of our surgical training courses in 2018.

We heard that, following a massive road traffic accident, a young patient was brought into his hospital with a compound hip fracture. He was losing so much blood that doctors were gravely concerned that he might not survive. Omar decided to perform a procedure he’d learnt to do properly on our training course.

He recently visited his patient and was delighted to see that he’s doing really well. “You saved another life without even knowing it. We are so proud of you. I want people to know the real benefits of these training courses”.

“The training helped me to do the procedure properly and without it the boy may not have lived” said Omar.
