Operation Medical has scheduled a surgical mission trip to Chitwan Medical College Teaching Hospital (CMC) in the City of Bharatpur, October 1 to October 7, 2017. We are planning to include surgery in the following areas: general surgery, plastics, gynecological, and ENT (head and neck).
CMC is a muilti-specialty teaching hospital with 750 beds and serves approximately a quarter of a million people a year from the District of Chitwan and surrounding areas including neighboring states of India. The City of Bharatpur has a population of over 500,000 people who are primarily peasant farmers cultivating mainly food and cash crops such as rice, maize, wheat, beans, lentils, mustard and vegetables. Bharatpur is the major maize producing area of Nepal. The area is also known for its poultry industry.

An Operation Medical surgical team will be at the Pierre Payan Hospital near the city of Montrouisis from October 21 through November 4, 2017. The team leaders, Dr. John Judson and Dr. Jeff Segil are currently recruiting members. They will again plan to do gynecology, urology and general surgery. They would also like to consider plastic surgery if a surgeon becomes available.
We are currently trying to see if a plasma button machine for performing transurethral prostatectomy (TURP) becomes available to purchase. It would be our hope to use this machine for our Haiti mission and to also use on other missions where a urologist is part of the team.
Please contact Operation Medical at email@example.com,if you have any questions or would be interested in joining this mission.
