Dr.Alam Zeb is a plastic surgeon and is currently serving as Head of Department of the Burn Unit at Saidu Group of Teaching Hospitals.
Belonging to a remote area of South Waziristan, It was nearly impossible for Dr. Alam Zeb to get quality education but fortunately, his father, Prof. Hafiz Muhammad Yasin (who was a teacher in college) knew the importance of education. That is why he moved along with his family to Dera Ismail Khan. Dr. Alam Zeb got his matriculation from St Helen High school and did his intermediate from Government Degree College Paharpur D.I.KHAN.
Dr. Alam Zeb started his professional career as a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at the Northwest General Hospital and Research Centre and completed his second fellowship in Hypospadiology and intersex disorders. He further carried on with his passion and studied a few courses in Microvascular surgery under the badge of British Association of Plastic Surgeons and Pakistan Association of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Alam Zeb also completed training in Advance Microvascular surgery at the Agha Khan Hospital Karachi.
Dr. Alam Zeb is currently holding memberships of the Pakistan Association of Plastic Surgery and Pakistan Association of Hand Surgery and he is a founding member of International Microsurgery Club. He is currently offering his services as Assistant Professor and Head Of Department of Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit Saidu group of teaching Hospitals (SGTH), Swat which is the first-ever unit of Burns and Plastic Surgery established at SGTH.
Due to the lack of facilities, funds, resources and Government attention, the Plastic Surgery and Burn Unit is very difficult to maintain. However, Thanks to Dr. Alam Zeb who works hard round the clock to make sure it stays alive and functioning. He not only donates his valuable time but also contributes huge amounts financially in order to ensure the availability of all the tools needed for general and microsurgery at the centre. Dr. Alam Zeb holds the honour of performing the first-ever hand replantation surgery successfully in the history of Malakand Division.
“You can achieve all your dreams and goals with devotion, hard work and a strong belief in Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala!” says Dr. Alam Zeb.
The world is full of good people who keep on inspiring others to do good and make this world a better place. As a nation, if each of us also focuses on the good (that exists around us) instead of criticizing and complaining, we would be automatically encouraged to do more of it rather than promoting hate and anger. We are very grateful to the doctors like Dr. Alam Zeb and people like him belonging to other professions who are sincere to this land and its people regardless of what they get in return. Indeed, You are our greatest treasures. Salute!
