BAGHDAD, IRAQ, November 12, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Akmam Al-Mahdi, FDSRCS, FICMS, has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Dr. Al-Mahdi celebrates more than 20 years of excellence as one of Iraq's top maxillofacial surgeons and an internationally-recognized expert in the treatment of complex congenital and trauma-related facial deformity. She has a Board in Maxillofacial Surgery, and has pursued advanced study in reconstructive and maxillofacial surgery throughout Europe and the Middle East, including a 2008 international clinical fellowship at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. While trained in the treatment of facial cancers, trauma and congenital deformity as discrete specialties, Dr. Al-Mahdi's Iraqi practice treats patients regardless of the underlying cause of their issue, and she has developed a unique cross-disciplinary approach to treatment.
Currently, Dr. Al-Mahdi has flourished as an attending oral and maxillofacial surgeon at the Medical City Hospital in Baghdad, in which her practice includes the surgical treatment of cleft lip and palate, jaw development and alignment disorders and congenital soft tissue irregularities. She has contributed to more than a dozen case studies and journal articles, with research interests including novel and less-invasive treatments for mandibular fusion and branchial cleft cysts. Since 2009, Dr. Al-Mahdi has excelled as the chief of the Arab Scientific Council of Maxillofacial Surgery, leading the way for further clinical developments in the specialty.
Dr. Al-Mahdi attributes her success to her motivation to help each patient live a life without complications, and to further the body of knowledge available to maxillofacial surgeons across the globe. She is proud to have distinguished herself in a competitive specialty and a male-dominated field, and hopes to continue to further her professional excellence in the coming years. A fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England and a Fellow of the Iraqi Board of Medical Specialization, she is affiliated with the Iraqi Dental Association and the Iraqi Association for Oral and Facial Surgeons. In her leisure time, Dr. Al-Mahdi is active as a talented violinist, and looks forward to pursuing more creative opportunities in the near future.
