Without any of these people, all the good work we have done would not have been possible.
DAKAR, Senegal, November 30, 2021 / APO Group / –
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael K. Obeng and the RESTORE Healthcare Volunteer Team (Restoring Emotional Stability Through Exceptional Reconstructive Efforts) (www.RestoreWorldwide.org) in collaboration with LocAfrique, an institution Leasing finance company in Senegal, will provide free reconstructive surgery to 100 patients in Senegal.
The medical mission starts from December 4 to 10, 2021. Consultations and all surgeries will take place at the Hôpital Principal De Dakar. Due to the current wave of COVID-19, security precautions will be expanded and implemented at the sites to ensure that all regulations are met or exceeded.
This will be the fourteenth year in a row that the RESTORE team and Dr. Obeng have embarked on such a humanitarian mission. Other countries in the past have included Gabon, Guatemala, Laos, Mexico, Nigeria, and Ghana, Dr. Obeng’s native country.
The management of Hôpital Principal De Dakar, Professor Abdou Razac Ndiaye and Dr. Lam are delighted to receive and host this year’s medical mission. Procedures to be performed include but are not limited to:
Resection and reconstruction of head and neck tumors Burn reconstruction Breast reduction Mastectomies and breast reconstruction Reconstruction of trunk and extremities Reconstruction of the abdominal wall Excision of benign tumors Intersex surgeries Foot and ankle surgeries
“It’s very humbling to be able to change the narrative in a community and to be able to bring hope to communities that have been devastated because someone doesn’t look like ‘all of us.’ I am very grateful to all the volunteers over the years, those who have donated money, those who have donated their time, and those who pray for us. Without any of these people, all the good work we have done would not have been possible, ”says Dr. Michael K Obeng.
This year’s team is made up of 34 medical volunteers from five different countries and three different continents. Some of the returning volunteers include Dawn Sutherland, former Xerox executive and Director of International Relations for RESTORE, Dr. Barry Freeman, Chief of Anesthesia Services at MiKO Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, and Dr. Paa-Ekow Hoyte-Williams , Chief of Plastic Surgery at Komfo Anokye University Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana. Dr. Mehmet Atila, Director of The Medical Inn in Düsseldorf, Germany, and Dr. Bertin Dembele from Mali, will be among the list of volunteers.
The medical mission to Senegal has been made possible by the Director General of LocAfrique, Khadim BA, who shares the same sentiments as Dr. Obeng that a healthy nation is a rich nation.
“We are excited to be part of this selfless humanitarian medical mission that will undoubtedly provide our communities with access to world-class medical care that is generally out of reach,” concludes Mr. Khadim BA, Managing Director of LocAfrique. .
