On the other hand, Prof. Dr. Sardar Muhammad Al-Freed Zafar, principal of the Post Graduate Medical Institute (PGMI), while speaking at the inauguration ceremony of four more dialysis machines for the Lahore General Hospital (LGH), said that the LGH was introducing “no cut no stitch” procedure for stones, prostate gland and other urological problems.

He said this technique was being practiced in the urology department of the LGH. Prof. Dr. Muhammad Nazir, a professor of urology at the LGH, told the media that the LGH dialysis centre operated 365 days a year, and doctors, nurses and paramedical staff provided services to the patients in three shifts. There were separate machines for hepatitis patients so that other patients were not affected, he added.
