EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2013

THE STORY:

I am traveling to Africa in late October as part of a special medical mission. I and two other surgeons will perform hip and knee replacements on patients in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country. We will also be working with and teaching local surgeons in joint replacement techniques as well as techniques for fracture fixation after trauma. The GEANCO Foundation (www.geanco.org) is organizing this mission - please check out their website for more information.  I have attached some videos and photos from a similar trip that occured in 2011.

I ask for your help as I am raising money to help cover the cost of this trip to Nigeria.  We are taking a couple of surgical teams as well as recovery room nurses, clinical nurses, and physical therapists on this trip.  We are taking over almost all of our own supplies and equipment and this will all cost a fair bit to pull off.  Thank you for supporting me in this special mission to bring health and hope to the heart of Africa!
