Al-Otaibi dedicated its operations to the poor and serving the needy, moving between the cities of Saudi Arabia and the world


The son of the city of Thuqbah, and the first Saudi doctor in this city, in which he was born and raised, and finished high school, and the conflict began between engaging in trade to choose engineering and completing his dream of becoming a doctor; So his father decided to give him the right to choose; He excelled in urology, especially laparoscopic surgery, and performed the first laparoscopic nephrectomy in the Middle East in 1995, and obtained the degree of Professor of Urology and Laparoscopic Surgery. It is Professor Khaled Al-Otaibi.

Al-Otaibi said to “Previously”: I started my journey in the world of medicine on a scholarship from Aramco, and I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery from King Faisal University in Dammam, then was sent to America and Canada to complete my studies in the specialty of kidney and urology surgery, as well as completing my specialization in surgery Kidney stones and endoscopy.

He added: After obtaining the Royal Canadian Fellowship for Surgeons in 1995, I returned to work at Aramco Hospital.

He continued: Because of my strong love for the field of scientific research and teaching, I moved in 2005 to King Faisal University, Faculty of Medicine, as a faculty member, and completed more than 40 scientific researches, which were published in international scientific journals, and now I am the Vice Dean of the College of Medicine and the Director General of King Fahd University Hospital in Khobar.

About his beginning of surgical volunteer work inside Saudi Arabia and African countries, Professor Al-Otaibi said: The first trip was to Pakistan in 1988 in the Peshawar region in the Afghan refugee camp, then I went to the jungles of Africa, visited a large number of poor African countries and performed many urological surgeries. Of the problems of prostate diseases and congenital malformations in children, 15 operations were performed on children in three days.

And he continued: I moved between remote and peripheral Saudi cities, and participated in the Visiting Doctor Program of the Ministry of Health. Among the areas I visited were Hail and Asir, and I had more than 6 visits to the Bisha area, and I used to perform accurate operations for congenital malformations of the urinary tract in children, saving them the trouble of traveling with their parents to areas where there are advanced centers.

And about the clothes hanger that he used in surgery, he says: I needed a tool to perform an endoscopic operation in a hospital, and it was not there; I had to use a clothes hanger after sterilizing it, and the operation was performed, and it was successful after God’s grace.
