MANHATTAN SURGICAL TEAM OF 18 RETURNS FROM WEEK IN HAITI
FEBRUARY 24, 2018
Welcome home to our surgical team that just returned from doing countless surgical cases in Haiti. With the generous donation from Via Christi in Manhattan, Dr. Laki Evangelidis was able to do many prostate surgeries with the use of an Evolve Laser. Evolve graciously donated the fibers that are necessary for this procedure and one of their sales reps joined the team to ensure all ran well with the machine. What a huge first for our team and for most of Haiti. Ear, Nose, and Throat surgeons, Dr. Purdom and Dr. Pease, were hard at work each day until as late as 11:30 pm each day which meant all of the nursing and support staff were also hard at work late until the evenings.
The team worked tirelessly giving of their talents and skills. They had so many patients waiting, that they had to turn away more than 30 surgical cases with the promise that they would return to help them later this year. See list of waiting patients below. You are can have a part of helping to make this promise come true by going to the donate tab on our web page www.manhattanmedicalmission.com and making a one-time donation towards medication, surgical drapes and sutures. Hope you enjoy the pictures which gives you a few snapshots of some of the team hard at work and “play.”
