Trinidad Born, UK Surgeon Hailed As Hero

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Thurs. Oct. 17, 2019: A Trinidadian-born
surgeon practicing in the UK is being hailed as a hero for successfully
re­constructing the jaw of a 15-year-old girl following a horrific horse-riding
accident.

Dr. Ricardo Mohammed-Ali, a con­sultant Oral
& Maxillofacial surgeon based at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals,
successfully reconstructed the jaw of Emily Eccles when it broke in half in August.

The surgery was extensive as it entailed re-im­plant­ing Emily’s low­er face. But luckily for
Emily, after the surgery, she is doing well and is reportedly back to eating
and drinking normally.

Mohammed-Ali left for Eng­land after studies
at the University of the West Indies and has been residing in the UK for the
past 16 years.
