Shumaila Adnan's Story
Shumaila Adnan, aged 30 years, took an intramuscular injection that caused infection in her left arm. As a result, gangrene started developing in her arm that extended to her hand. The prescribed medications could not cure her condition. Therefore, the gangrenous arm had to be amputated above the elbow. Her doctor advised her to get an above elbow non-functional prosthetic arm that would assist her in movement and in lifting weight. Shumaila visited HOPE Rehabilitation Center and her prosthetic arm was placed under the supervision of Dr. Khalid Niazi on 25th Aug, 2021. She is happy to have received her new arm.
