They have provided general medical treatment to thousands of patients and performed surgery on hundreds of patients with advanced and difficult orthopaedic injuries and conditions. These are generally patients that otherwise would have been neglected due to poverty and lack of access to care. They have ranged in age from newborns to the elderly. Our surgeons usually collaborate with local orthopaedic surgeons to ensure follow-up care. They also stay in touch via telephone and the internet to continue to assist with the care of the patients.

“Our doctors have received support from US based orthopaedic manufacturing companies during these missions, particularly from Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics. We have also received donations from Zimmer Inc., Stryker Orthopaedics and Inomed which has allowed the doctors to perform high level procedures.

“Dr. Onyike performed the first total hip replacement surgeries in Imo State at the Imo State University Teaching Hospital in Orlu as well as the first total knee replacement surgery in Ekiti State. Dr. Awantang and Dr. Ojeyemi have also participated in various medical missions in Nigeria.
At the end of medical missions our surgeons are often able to donate orthopaedic equipment, tools and implants which are then used for patient care long after their departure.”
