American surgeons perform free surgery
HA NOI — More than 80 Vietnamese patients, mainly children with foot deformities and disabilities, will get free surgery by surgeons from the American Orthopaedic Foot&Ankle Society under an ongoing four-week humanitarian outreach project.
The American surgeons will also offer check-ups for over 200 other patients at clinics in Ha Noi, Vinh, Thai Nguyen and Dien Bien.
The US doctors have been working with the Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Institute, Viet Duc Hospital and local orthopaedic surgeons during the programme, which will end on August 4.
They will also share knowledge and new techniques on how to care for patients.-VNS
