I just read that you broke your leg in
Quetta !!! If you will be tranferred to Islamabad for further treatment, we know the BEST surgeon
you will find : Dr. Aly Khokhar (orthopedic and trauma surgeon). Here are his coordinates : he
works at the "Ali Medical Centre" / Main Markaz F8 / Islamabad
This is his phone at the hospital : 051 255.313 (but it's hard to find someone at the reception
speaking English) / his phone at home : 051 227.51.17 / his mobile : 0300 854.51.17
Tell him you got his coordinates from us. He's very friendly, knows his job very very well, has
studied 10 years in England, etc. etc. He did a very good job on my leg in 1999 and we visited him
again last year.
We travelled from Belgium to India overland in 1999, and I broke my leg then in Pakistan too. If
you're bored, you can read the entire story on our website (see below).
Doctor Khokhar treated me then and we stayed for 2 weeks in Ali Medical Centre, after which we
were flown home, and the bikes shipped. As our project was unfinished, we re-travelled last year
to India and back, and all was fine.
If you're bored, or you want to "talk" to a complete stranger, go ahead. I know what it is like,
and I was SO very very lucky to have my friend with me to handle all the practical bits...
Wish you all THE BEST.
