Trip 135, Post 6

The team accomplished 8 gynecological surgeries and 6 general surgeries on Thursday. The hospital staff at the Obras has been very helpful and accommodating in meeting our surgical mission.

It has been a rewarding experience for us all to be able to help the Guatemalan people who would not otherwise be able to receive life changing medical care.

Several of the Gyn cases brought new hope to people who would not have been able to have children. Other surgical interventions involved removing several cancerous masses, and repairing other elements that have been causing extreme pain for our patients for many years.
