A/Professor Miniter and Professor Marco Lanzetta from Italy embarked on another surgical mission to Jamkhed in February 2017.
After the success of the first mission, it was exciting and rewarding to return and see the patients who have undergone surgical treatment. There is also a host of others who need assessment and management for severe conditions such as polio, burns, infection, trauma, and congenital abnormality.
The lasting impression of the severity of disease and hardship with which people live on an everyday basis is still present in our minds. It is humbling and puts out own lives and, dare we say some of our petty day to day concerns in a clear light.
We have, of course, recorded progress of this exciting and rewarding trip, you can see that in our other blog posts.
