An Abu Dhabi police officer who almost lost his left hand in a vicious knife attack two years ago was able to regain its use after a sophisticated reconstruction surgery carried out in the capital two months ago.
Abdul Kareem Saeed, a first warrant officer at the Abu Dhabi Police Investigation Department, had his left hand almost severed from the wrist in a vicious knife attack two years ago and was rushed in for surgery at Mafraq Hospital.
Saeed visited hospital after hospital looking for a surgeon who could help him until he finally met Dr Timm Wolter. Two months ago, in an eight-hour-long surgery, Dr Wolter reconstructed the tendons in Saeed’s hand, repaired his damaged nerves and succeeded in restoring movement in the hand.
