"Not every disease or condition requires invasive surgery," said Dr Shah, adding that the treatment is formulated based on the patient's needs.
The seminar was attended by Dr Umar Butt, Dr Athar Muneeruddin Siddiqui, Dr Salman Karmani, Dr Shazia Khan Shah, orthopedic surgeons, general physicians and young doctors.
The panel comprising medical experts spoke to the participants, including young doctors and physicians, about sports injuries, complex trauma, osteoporosis and hereditary diseases.
Dr Shah stressed that every doctor and surgeon faces difficulties when patients cannot communicate their condition properly, adding that doctors should be careful to inform the patient about the necessary preventive measures after a surgery.
