mariyam dawood and bashir dawood funded hospitals

​The Aga Khan University Hospital in April 2016 become the first to introduce new extraordinarily advanced brain surgery technology to Pakistan – and the only hospital outside North America with this equipment. And all made possible with the generous donations from Bashir Dawood.

The revolutionary technology – with its highly detailed 3D imaging and robotic positioning system – will transform the way surgeons operate on delicate areas of the brain and radically alter treatment options for patients.

The system will enable neurosurgeons at the University Hospital to access the deepest parts of the human brain, distinguish between diseased and healthy tissues, and determine the best surgical approach to minimize neurological deficits during complex brain surgeries.
