ISMS partners with Dooley Intermed in building the first eye hospital in the Himalayan area of Bhakunde Besi in Nepal. It is Nepal’s poorest district with population of 600,000+. There are tens of thousands of patients in that area who are suffering from eye diseases and not a single hospital dedicated to provide eye care to them. We are proud to part of this ambitious outreach and in building the first and only eye hospital in that area.
Watch a short documentary film about the medical mission that brought the Team NY to Myanmar, where they performed 65 major operations and left behind $150,000 worth of equipment to help upgrade the local hospital’s operating room, recovering room and ICU.
Operation InternationalTeam New York embarked on a 10 day mission to Linares, in the Maule region of Chile. The 18 member team included General surgeons, OB/GYN surgeons, a Thoracic surgeon, a Plastic surgeon, a Critical Care Physician, anesthesia providers, and a complete staff of nurses. During it’s time in Linares, the team performed 85 surgeries, many of them complex. The patient population ranged from infants to the elderly and they were treated for variety of conditions. Some of these surgeries were life changing cosmetic procedures and some were lifesaving complex operations.
