Dr. Uchechi Iweala, son of the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Dr. Ngozi Okonji-Iweala, was part of the medical team that created a new medical record in Maryland, United States of America.
Dr. Uchechi Iweala was one of the first spinal surgeons in Maryland to perform a successful navigated lumbar spinal fusion using a robot.
The proud mother and Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance broke the good news on Thursday, via her Twitter handle.
Sharing pictures from the theatre, she wrote: “Congratulations Dr. Uchechi Iweala, on being one of the first spinal surgeons in Maryland to perform a successful navigated lumbar spinal fusion using a robot! So proud to be your Mum! Keep it going!”
