Complicated brain surgery performed at UCH Ibadan

Neuroscientists at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan have successfully completed the most complex brain surgery ever handled by the hospital.

The patient was a 31 year old male with a bleeding brain aneurysm, which had already cost him vision in one eye.

After about three hours of intense surgery, the bleeding organ was clipped and all functions restored. Just 30 minutes after the surgery, the patient was talking.

The Chief Medical Director, UCH Prof. Temitope Alonge, told Channels TV exclusively that the hospital had done nearly 30 serious cases of brain surgery since the equipment were procured but added that more public private initiatives must be encouraged to improve efficiency in the health sector.
