From Iraqi refugee to pioneering surgeon

Surgeon, Dr Munjed Al Muderis, escaped Saddam Hussein’s regime, survived a dangerous ocean crossing, and spent 10 months in Curtin Detention Centre. He now practices his pioneering surgery for amputees in Australia. Michael Power interviewed Dr Al Muderis about his journey and his work.

Michael scrubbed up and joined the surgeon and his team in the operating theatre to witness firsthand the osseointegration surgery that is enabling amputees to walk again. Dr Al Munderis spoke candidly about his time in refugee detention and provided personal materials to illustrate his story.

The video complemented Greg Callaghan’s story in the Good Weekend, The astonishing journey of surgeon Munjed Al Muderis.’
