Worthy to note is the university teaching hospital’s success in carrying out notable brain surgery. Afe Babalola Multi-System Hospital had a successful brain operation on a lady who had been complaining of a severe headache on one side of her head for over three years and had been to different medical centers as well as spiritual homes.
