Expert care helps an Emirati pediatric patient to live a normal life
Mansoor, a four-year old Emirati pediatric patient, will be able to go home and live with his family for the first time as a result of the expert care he received at NMC ProVita International Medical Center in Abu Dhabi.
Mansoor Ali Salem AlGashani was hospitalised at birth. A premature baby and one of quadruplets, he was born with a number of serious health issues, including chronic lung disease. Mansoor was treated at several Abu Dhabi-based facilities before he was transferred to NMC ProVita, where he underwent a tracheostomy and gastrostomy tube feeding and received around-the-clock medical and nursing care.
After two years on a ventilator, Mansoor is now able to breathe without assistance. A clever child who speaks four languages, the Minions fan can now eat, drink and do everything that other four-year olds do. One of his doctors explained that Mansoor is more comfortable now, and said that he enjoys sitting outside his room and communicating with staff and families.
