General Surgeons will participate in many procedures and operations ranging from vascular surgeries, cardiothoracic surgeries and, of course, abdominal surgeries. Last year, we were successful in removing a carotid body tumor along with several open heart surgeries, aorto-bifemoral bypass, and peripheral vascular procedures.
Emergency physicians last year were involved in emergency care along side with the resident physicians of the Palestine Medical Complex. They performed academic bedside teaching, procedures like intubations, central lines, and taught ultrasonography, including ruling out free fluid in the abdomen, pericardial effusions, and aortic aneurysms.
Plastic Surgery was a crucial part of the mission last year. We performed multiple surgical flaps, wound care and so forth. Orthopedic surgery procedures are a daily task there and we need further assistance along with anesthesiologists who can help keep the operating rooms open. Please contact us if you are interested.
