A RARE CASE OF ABDOMINAL TUMOR SUCCESSFULLY OPERATED AT BSH
Bahrain Specialist Hospital is proud to share with you a very interesting and rarecase. A young patient was referred to the Gastroenterology Clinic at BSH complaining of abdominal heaviness and diarrhea. An abdominal mass was felt on examination. A CT scan was ordered and then the patient was referred to Dr. Bashar A. Saleh / General and Laparoscopic Surgery Consultant. The CT scan showed a huge mass between the liver, kidney, colon, duodenum and pancreas. It was pressing on the Inferior Vena Cava (a major abdominal vein). The patient was immediately sent to surgery. The surgery lasted for 5 hours and ended successfully by removing the whole tumor without sacrificing any internal organ.
The Histopathological study showed a rare type of abdominal tumor. Dr. Saleh was very satisfied with the patient’s condition at discharge from the hospital, after the successful operation. When asked the successful future chances of complete recovery of the patient, he commented. “Usually, if this kind of tumor is removed well and completely, the prognosis will be excellent”.Dr. Jafar presented a research from BSH, using the CT scan to show that the kidney volumes of patients with Hypertension are smaller than those of normal people.

I was suffering from excessive obesity, and I had tried many kinds of nutritional diets, in addition to weight reducing medications and products, but without success.
A relative of mine advised me to go to Bahrain Specialist Hospital and see Ms. Sowmya Chandra/Nutrition Specialist. Indeed I joined a healthy nutritional program which she had specifically designed to reduce my weight, and was suitable for my food taste. I started to see amazing results from the very first month, while enjoying the healthy meals prepared by the Hospital. Now, one year after joining the program, I have already lost about 63 kg’s of my weight.
Many thanks to my family, thanks to Mrs. Sowmya,thanks to the kitchen team, thanks to Bahrain Specialist Hospital and thanks to all those who supported me, stood by me and encouraged me.Thank you, Thank you and Thank you.
It was a wonderful experience and was provided with utmost care and concern by all at Bahrain Specialist Hospital. My baby’s stay at the Nursery was excellent. I was free of any kind of worry. Thank you and keep up your great work.
Our thanks to all Shaun’s Doctors at Bahrain Specialist Hospital. We could not have asked for better treatment. They have all given us hope, guidance and goals to aim for….. Our most sincere thanks to them all. A special thank you to ICU Nurse Jennifer, her care, friendship and kindness went beyond call of duty.We will always thank her for giving us those 15 minutes at BSH garden. These 15 minutes are what I will take back home to Singapore with me….. Until…. I return again for Shaun.

Special thanks to staff nurse Alvira and Miss Jose for the excellent care they provided and to all the staff in the Nursery for looking after my baby. Good job!
To whom it may concern!
I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Harilal and his Assistant for the best dental treatment that I have ever experienced in my life. Honestly speaking, I always used to be scared from dentists since I was young due to childhood experience and I kept having this fear from going to dentists all my life and now I am 26 years old. But after I visited Dr. Harilal and he started my treatment for almost all of my teeth, I decided to go to the dentist on regular basis for checkups. He doesn’t only treat the patient as a dentist, but also psychologically, which made me feel comfortable and willing to continue the rest of my treatment with him and his friendly assistant.
Bahrain Specialist Hospital should be proud to have a dentist like him.
I would like to thank you a lot at Bahrain Specialist Hospital for taking care of one of my patients named Farheen Nazan. Today she came to visit me and she was sincerely happy about everything- from your hospitality, your care and compassion. She is absolutely normal now.
My other patients are also saying the same, so I thought I should convey my special thanks to you…
Dr. Nazma Adil Habib
I have been in different hospitals in many countries and really enjoyed my stay at Bahrain Specialist Hospital. Big thanks to you all your staff and especially Dr. Salam Jibrel.
Both my husband and I have struggled with our weight for years and while we acknowledged all the benefits of losing weight both from the immediate and long term health benefits, we just couldn’t “get it together” enough to elect the obvious course of action. However, over the past year the two seemingly divergent points of “weight problem” and “taking action” did FINALLY converge. The Gulf Daily News featured an article about Bahrain Specialist Hospital’s new program that provided individuals with take away meals especially designed to meet their medical and dietary needs. I finally had enough of struggling with such seemingly simple things like bending over to tie my shoelaces without turning red. So I made appointments for my husband and I with BSH so we could embark on our new path to a better life. Dr. Jafar Al Said, Nephrology, Hypertension & Internal Medicine Consultant, ordered medical examinations for both my husband and I to check on our health conditions and their after assign to us the right diets; to ensure regular weight loss without compromises on our health.
When we picked up our first meals from BSH, what a pleasant surprise? Contrary to what one would stereotypically expect a “hospital food”; our meals were a feast for the eyes, palate, and stomach! As a result of these personalized eating plans we averaged a weekly weight-loss of 1 kg each with a total weight loss of 10 kg each by just eight weeks!
The anticipated and desired benefits of our weight loss is already being experienced… we can move more easily, with less stress on our bodies, we breath easier and our clothes fit better (as a matter of fact we’ve been required to buy new, smaller sized clothing)! We saved on eating expenses, feel healthier and by following this program saved on health care expenses in the future. So the program is not an expense but an investment. We look forward to continue the program and to lose more weight over the coming months.
My Delivery Experience at BSH
Mrs. Rania Al ABinali delivered her baby Deige Al Binali at BSH third floor, Laber & Delivery ward. Representatives from the patients’ PR division were able to get some feedback about Mrs. Al Binali’s experience as follows:
Q: How do you consider your experience at BSH?
A: As you know, it’s my first delivery and I should say it is a wonderful experience. Apart from what we women have to go through, the medical care is great, the services are perfect, and the atmosphere and location with the sea view are relaxing and therapeutic. But above all I was impressed with the personal care I received as a patient. Therefore, I extend my gratitude to the Doctors, Nurses and all the Staff that participated in making this experience a joyful one.

"Dear Dr Harilal (and Indira)
I love my whiter teeth! Many thanks for the thoroughly effective work you completed last week, which has given me whiter, sparklier teeth!
I am truly delighted to have this done so easily and comfortably because as you know, I am not a keen dentistry patient. However your work is always so thoughtful smooth and gentle, that I have been pain free on every occasion you have worked with me, which I appreciate enormously."
Many, many thanks
"I received an excellent healthcare treatment from the nursing staff, mainly Mr. Anoop and Ms. Rose. They really took good care of me. Dr. Riyadh, Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Sunil Rao they are excellent doctors. Thank you BSH and thanks to your efficient and professional medical team members."
Mr. Anthony Hughes
"During my visit to Bahrain Specialist Hospital, I was treated with more than the expected care, the staff here, generally is more hospitable and friendly. Moreover, the prices are of a satisfactory level. During my treatment, Dr. Sunil Rao really motivated me to quit smoking. I am really satisfied with the hospital and its treatment."
Mr. Yasir Saeed
"I would like to thank Dr. Farah, all the nurses and all the staff that were involved in taking care of me and my baby during my stay at BSH. I really appreciated all the things you have done for us. Thanks once again for the nursing care, medical care, catering services and special thanks to Dr. Farah."

Facts for the Traveler
Best time to visit Bahrain
Weather is not too hot in Bahrain during the months of November and March, thus perfect for travelers. Things are much slower during the Muslim month of feasting Ramadan. Accommodation is hard to find or at higher rates at the end of Ramadan, during the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, or over New Year’s Eve.
The religious festival of Ashoora is commemorated by Bahrain’s large Shiite community, the tenth of Muharram marking the death of the grandson of the Prophet, Imam Hussein.
Qal’at Al-Bahrain - the main archeological site, know also as the Portuguese Fort
Barbar and Al-Diraz temples - 2nd and 3rd millenium BC temples
Al-’Areen Wildlife Sanctuary - a conservation area, where you can find many of Arabia’s indigenous species, but also animals brought to the island from other places.
Muharraq Island - almost frozen in time, with few modernization over the time, you can find here well-preserved traditional houses and its souk is maybe even more interesting that the one in Manama
