The procedure was carried out be by a Nigerian cardiologist, Dr. Adeyemi Johnson, of First Cardiology Consultants, who returned to Nigeria after practising in the United States for over 25 years.
Dr. Johnson is quoted as saying that believes that angioplasty has come to stay in Nigeria, because his team is now based here. The team is made up of a British-trained Nigerian nurse, a Lebanese-trained nurse and Indian-trained nurses, while the Reddington Hospital is providing the high-tech equipment being used.
Reddington hospital is presumed to be the best tertiary medical care facility in Nigeria. Newly built on nine floors, it provides care in all fields of Internal Medicine all supported by the latest technology. The CEO says that they will not relent in our quest to pursue medical excellence….
There is just one small catch….wait for the bill!
But …we celebrate this first step…and hope that our colleagues with similar expertise all over the world will move from their “jobs”, and “careers”…and seek their “calling”…at home in Nigeria.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has…Margaret Mead
