In most developing countries, access to qualified surgeons and hygienic surgery suites are typically reserved for the wealthy. If surgical specialities are available in developing countries, the procedures are usually cost-prohibitive for those with low economic means. Our Surgical Program delivers healing to patients whose conditions have been left untreated, often for many years. This means that minor problems become huge life-threatening issues. The Project Teams and Partnering Health Centers work together to ensure a variety of surgical services are available and accessible, usually including a small, reasonable fee. In addition to the surgeries, Medical Ministry International provides training for local surgeons designed to strengthen continued care in these communities. Surgical services often include: abdominal, bones & joints, breast, colorectal, extremities, gynecology, head & neck, obstetrics, plastic & reconstructive, thoracic, urology, and vascular.
