Auto Transplant: The first transplant operation in the history of Pakistan at Dow University in Karachi in which the patient’s own liver was transplanted.
When Sadiq Shah, 28, complained of chest pain to his brother, Police Chief Constable Muhammad Shah, he had no idea that his specific ailment had never been successfully treated in Pakistan before.
Doctors from a few major hospitals in Quetta and Karachi had already responded, and everyone believed that the operation that could have saved Sadiq Shah’s life was not possible in Pakistan.
Hearing this, the earth came out from under our feet. To save my brother’s life, we quickly applied for a passport and at the same time took out a loan to raise money and started selling the land or property that was available.
On the advice of doctors, Muhammad Shah was preparing to take his brother to the United States or Britain. Then one day while visiting hospitals in Karachi, someone advised him to contact Dr. Faisal Saud Dar.
