Interface has funded trainee surgeons – Cornelius and Naomi, and nurse Florence to attend a microsurgery course at Ganga hospital, Coimbatore, India. Here is an excerpt from their report:
We (Florence, Dr Naomi and Dr Cornelius) were in Coimbatore India from 12th February through 3rd March to undertake a microsurgery course. The trip was fully funded by Interface Uganda a charity organization. The purpose of the trip and course was to help upscale and improve the microsurgery done at CoRSU hospital and also improve in the pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care of patients undergoing microsurgery procedures (free flaps).
Microsurgery is an area of patient management that is increasingly demanded of us at CoRSU-a tertiary care institution that takes on patients with complex cases of whom basic plastic and orthopaedic reconstructive options of care are greatly challenged. With this under met need of microsurgical reconstruction, this trip and training was in order for better service to our patients the very essence of our existence.
