JPMC seeks help for injured Orthopedic Surgeon

KARACHI: The Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) has sought the help of the Sindh government for the treatment of Prof Saeed Minhas, who was grievously injured in a road accident a few days back and admitted in the Aga Khan University Hospital (AKUH) in critical condition.

Executive Director, JPMC, Dr Seemin Jamali, appealed to the Chief Minister (CM) Sindh to help in the treatment of Prof Seed Minhas, former Head Of Department (HOD) of Orthopedic Surgery, JPMC, who was critically injured in a recent road accident near the Arts Council of Pakistan while crossing the road. Prof Saeed Minhas stepped in a pothole and fell after which a passing vehicle hit him and resulted in a severe head injury.

Dr Minhas has tremendously contributed to the fields of orthopedics and trauma care and saved the lives of several patients throughout his service. He was initially taken to the Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto (SMBB) Institute of Trauma and then moved to the Agha Khan University Hospital. He has been on a ventilator ever since.

The CM has been requested to help with his treatment as the expenditure for his treatment is excessive, and the government’s support is needed in this regard.
