Entries in this section describe work that is planned in the future, so that interested pediatric surgeons can join trips that are already organized. Entries in this section might also describe work that is needed by pediatric surgeons in low- and middle-income countries, so that potential volunteers can connect with these surgeons to meet their needs.
I'm a general medical practitioner with interest in Paediatric Surgery. I graduated in Sept. 2010 at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical College and undertook a one year internship programme at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre. As a finalist student, I attend the July 2010 PAPSA Congress meeting in Dar-es-salaam Tanzania where I presented a paper in Blunt Abdominal Trauma which featured in one of the PAPSA journals in 2010.
Currently, my abstract has been accepted for the PAPSA Congress meeting in March 2012 which will take place in Cape Town in March. My supervisors are Miss Kokila Lakhoo, Dr. Kondo Chilonga, and Dr. David Msuya.
Surgical help will be needed in the form of training of surgeons. We have got reasonably good expertise in doing most of the open procedures and various laparoscopic procedures. We wish to learn advanced pediatric laparoscopy. We have got basic instruments for open and laparoscopic surgeries.
This program is active in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ecuador, and Guatamala. The trip is planned for the week over July 4th 2012. There will be an adult surgeon who specializes in hernia repairs. The program is dedicated to high quality and education, so experienced pediatric surgeons are the goal. Logistics are through Hernia Repair for the Underserved.
