The Children’s Surgical Centre welcomes and receives numerous visits from many surgical and medical teams from across the world, including from Europe, North America, Australasia and Asia. Through their dedicated visits, CSC has been able to develop surgical services within the country that were previously inaccessible. This includes joint replacements, scoliosis surgery, microsurgery including nerve reconstruction, free flap surgery as well regional anesthesia, and entire specialties developing such as Ear, Nose, Throat surgery, and opthalmology services.
We firmly believe surgical missions should be focused on long-term capacity building through training of local surgeons, with an emphasis on repeated missions over the course of several years. CSC does not fund surgical missions but will continue to facilitate visitors during their stay here, including screening for suitable patients for surgery, and provide post-op care and follow up.
