Abdul Saboor Khan’s Journey to a healthy heart
Abdul Saboor's Story
Abdul Saboor, a beautiful three years old boy, from Laki Marwat, KPK, had a very difficult childhood. He would often fall sick and due to his parent’s minimal resources he was never diagnosed properly. After some check-ups from local doctors they were advised to go to Peshawar city. There he got his initial diagnosis done as Tetralogy of Fallot. The pediatric cardiac surgeon advised him to have an open heart surgery. Therefore, Abdul Saboor was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital. His BT shunt surgery was performed on 17-03-2021 by Dr. Mohammed Asim Khan. He was kept under observation until seen perfectly well and was discharged after five days of hospital stay in stable condition. His surgery was done with the help of Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation.
