Saudi revolutionizes ear surgery with hag needle invention.
There is a revolution in the way ear surgery is performed courtesy of the invention of the hag needle. Dr. Abdul Karim Reza Fidaa, the nose, ear, throat and facial plastic surgery consultant, is the brain behind the needle.The idea was to create a technique with minimal medical intervention. Fidaa thought of using laparoscopic surgery, to help those who have congenital abnormalities in the ear and nose. The idea is based on how to conduct a surgery without full anesthesia, and carving the cartilage skin without a large opening and this was the beginning of the innovation for making the hag needle.
