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
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.
