Jimma University Medical Center MVJ4+VCX, Jimma, Ethiopia Jimma Oromia - Ethiopia
Third-Level Hospital (Referral)
This is a teaching hospital
I work as an Assistant professor of Urology and give lectures to medical students and General Surgery trainees. I also work as a a urologist attending Clinics, Performing and teaching Urological procedures. I'm interested in Urolithiasis / Advanced Endourology and Laparoscopic surgery, hoping to do a fellowship training in these field. I'm a 32 years old energetic and motivated surgeon trying my best to increase awareness and improve the overall Urological service of the region and the country.
I work with two other Urologists at the University, we face many challenges in provision of current standard treatments due to shortage of equipment. I personally like to figure out ways of providing services with minimizing expenses for the patients and the Hospital. Since my arrival about a year ago, i have played a major role in making sure our Department receives the necessary attention from the University. As Such we were able to Establish a setup Equipped for basic Endoscopic surgeries like TURP, Ureterorenoscopy and Lithotripsy, simple Laparoscopic procedures like Renal Cyst excisions.
My goal is to advance myself in advanced minimally invasive procedures by getting the necessary trainings and to serve this poor community by advancing Urology services and proucing many more Urologists to reach the demand of our rapidly growing population.
