A new Doctor...

There is one OB/GYN doctor this trip and she is basically seeing patients in clinic all day, everyday. Her name is Stephanie and she is from Oregon. This is her first trip with Faith In Practice and when she found out that there would be no other OB/GYNs on this trip, she said that she would not feel comfortable performing surgeries without someone else as backup. However, after she met our two other surgeons, and they reassured her that they were more than happy to help her, she was itching to get in the operating room. The first morning had barely started when she was seeking out Kathy and G to see if she could add a procedure that she had found in the clinic. As the week went on, she saw many patients who were VERY grateful that she had “cured” the many problems that they had. She has seen many different things this week...some things that would break your heart and some things that were relatively easy fixes. Yesterday, she had a 16-year-old patient with a very large cyst on her ovary…and she couldn’t turn the girl away without helping her. She is scheduled for surgery in the morning…and Dr. Stephanie will be operating. Stay tuned for more...
