Dr. Obaidullah, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, NWGH addresses the intricate nature of gender development in newborns and the distress it causes for parents due to the scarcity of specialised centres. Northwest General Hospital/Northwest School of Medicine Peshawar stands as one such vital institution catering to this concern. A team of specialists, not only from NWGH but also from other institutions, convenes twice a month to provide comprehensive care.
This multidisciplinary team includes endocrinologists, plastic surgeons, urologists, gynaecologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, paediatricians, paediatric surgeons, pathologists, and radiologists. Together, they engage in collaborative consultations with the child or adult patients and their parents, offering free advice and devising medical or surgical treatment plans, always with the full consent of the parents.
Dr. Obaidullah extends an invitation to families who might have children facing these challenges, urging them to reach out for assistance. Referrals from medical colleagues are also welcomed. Contact can be initiated by sharing patient images and test results via WhatsApp at +923209013373. For those unable to visit Peshawar, arrangements for video consultations can also be made.
