The operation is expected to last for 15 hours and 8 phases. The surgical team is comprised of 30 people. There will be four physicians coming in from the Al-Khansaa Teaching Hospital, Mosul, Iraq to observe the procedure, as well as Saudi medical and nursing students who will participate in this surgery.
