Dr. Jaime Vallejos, General Surgeon

In 2009, Dr. Jaime Vallejos was the young general surgeon appointed by the Viedma Hospital, a large public hospital in Cochabamba, to organize the surgery schedule for Solidarity Bridge’s first mission trip focused on training in laparoscopic surgery. The mission team soon noted Dr. Vallejos’s special gifts in laparoscopy and dedication to his patients. In 2011, he was invited to collaborate as a full-time Solidarity Bridge partner. Since then, Dr. Vallejos has performed over 100 general surgeries, primarily laparoscopic gall bladder and hernia surgeries, through our year-round program.
