Patient’s Aid Foundation & Govt. of Sindh
help establish PET CT facility at JPMC

KARACHI: In an excellent example of Public-Private Partnership, Patients Aid Foundation in collaboration with Government of Sindh has established PET CT facility at JPMC Karachi. Patients referred by oncologists and radiologists will be provided these diagnostic facilities absolutely free but it will be ensured that this facility is not misused and is provided only to those where it is indicated and justified. However, those who wish can contribute through donations from Zakat Funds upto Rs. 15,000/- per patient.

Choose a sub-specialty as there will be little Space
for a General Ophthalmologist in future

KARACHI: It is more than a decade that subspecialties in ophthalmology are well established in the western countries. The pace of research and technological advances are so rapid that it is no longer possible for an ophthalmologist to master every field. This is my clear message to ophthalmologists in Pakistan that, they must choose one subspecialty to excel so that he/she could offer the best to the patient and stay in competitive race says Dr. Mukhtar Ahmad who is an experienced ophthalmologistwith numerous pioneer works introduced in Pakistan.
