In most developing countries, access to qualified surgeons and hygienic surgery suites are typically reserved for the wealthy. MMI Canada’s surgical teams and health centers work together to ensure that a variety of surgical services are available and accessible, regardless of a person’s ability to pay.
Issues that are typically addressed early in the western world often go unaddressed in underdeveloped areas. Minor problems become huge life-threatening issues when left untreated. General surgeries, hernia repairs, tumor removals, cleft lip and palate repairs are simply a few examples of procedures performed by MMI Canada Surgical Teams. In addition to the surgeries, MMI Canada provides training for local surgeons designed to strengthen the provision of continued care in these communities.
