History made as Machakos hospital successfully performs first ever brain surgery



Machakos level 5 referral hospital has entered into history books after neurosurgeons successfully conducted the first ever brain surgery.

Lead surgeon Sam Njiru and his team removed a brain tumour from 58-year-old Henry Mutinda.

“This is a milestone achievement for Machakos level 5 and a testimony that the Universal Health Coverage program is a practical solution to the country’s healthcare service delivery,” he said.

The complex surgery lasted three hours.

According to Dr Doreen Mwiroba, the patient has had a history of frontal swelling and weakness of the right side of the body.

He was admitted on July 12 and an MRI revealed frontal Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

He was referred to the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi for review.

A few days later, he was readmitted by the neurosurgeon in Machakos and a craniotomy scheduled for Friday.

His wife Mary Mbinya Mutinda and brother Alex Muisyo could not hide his joy after the successful operation.
