WPP to conduct a one-day free orthopaedic clinic
The World Pediatric Project (WPP) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health conduct a free orthopaedic clinic on Sunday September 2 for children up to the age of 21 with club feet, severe bowing of the legs and unequal length of legs.
At the orthopaedic mission in September 2017, 32 patients were evaluated, 11 of those were regional patients. There were 15 surgeries provided.
Executive Director of the Eastern Caribbean, WPP, Lauren McIntosh indicated her delight at the continued impact of these missions.
“The ability to provide children with the opportunity of diagnostic and surgical critical care in a multitude of paediatric subspecialties is reflective of WPP’s purpose to healing children and improving healthcare capacity” highlighted McIntosh.
Parents and guardians of children who may need to be assessed are asked to contact World Pediatric Project office at 784-451-2989 or 784-494-2751 for more information.
World Pediatric Project offers surgical and diagnostic critical pediatric care to children of the Eastern Caribbean and has been actively working in St. Vincent & the Grenadines since 2002.
