Earthwide Surgical Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to delivering surgical care to the poor of the world by means of manpower, equipment and education.
Many people ask about our pathology. For a long time, Danny Milner, MD, at Harvard/Brigham and Women's Hospital. performed all our pathology on the specimens I brought home with me. This was a really great situation which, unfortunately, ended when Danny left the Brigham to become the Chief Medical Officer at the American Society for Clinical Pathology. After an appeal on my Blog Site (www.earthwidesurgicalfoundation.blogspot.com), I received many gracious offers for pathology help from around the world.
Fortunately, we met Dr. Chidi Onwuka from the Department of Histopathology at the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital. He graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and did his pathology training at the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria. His group now does all our pathology work. Chidi is a very pleasant chap and comes every week to pick up our specimens and his turn around time is 1 week!
