Opal House and Fidago Island Rotary pediatric orthopedic surgical week from March 4th till March 11th.
A team of five foot and ankle surgeons and two pediatric orthopedic surgeons and 3 anesthesiologists performed 34 major bone surgeries on poor children and a few adults with serious orthopedic deformities, many of them congenital. This no charge surgical service reaches poor families all across Guatemala who have no resources for private surgery.
This cooperative Rotary effort occurred in the San Lucas Toliman parroquia hospital that recently received two excellent Rotary Global Grant paid xray machines. Many thanks to all who serve the truly poor of Guatemala.
