Today was the first day of surgery for the September mission trip to the Nigerian Christian Hospital. The hospital is exploding with patients. There are now 24 patients waiting for surgery. Today we took it "easy" so everyone could get in the swing of things and we only did five surgeries including a rectal prolapse, 2 goiters, a giant incisional hernia and an epididymal cyst. We saw dozens of patients between cases.
Addendum (10/4/11)-the patient went home with the prolapse corrected.
