Working with local doctors, nurses and personnel has been smooth and throughout this first day we have already shared quite a lot of experience and knowledge. At first, we have to gather general information of our patients like name, address and age. Then they are seen by the plastic surgeons who have to decide if they can perform surgery on them, and what procedure would be best. Before a final approval, the pediatrician and the anesthesiologists have to make sure that the patient’s general health condition allows for surgery.
In this photo, one of the Ingenio´s pediatricians, Jamilet Morales, and Interplast pediatrician Marly Larrabee are approving a patient for surgery.
