Throughout the year, our Bolivian partner surgeons perform gallbladder and hernia surgeries, in high demand among impoverished patients who are identified through our offices in Bolivia. Our mission teams deliver vital equipment and supplies and provide ongoing training to advance skills in these and other high-complexity procedures such as megacolon and various oncological surgeries. Mission trips seek to expand surgical capacities at the most important third-level public hospitals in Cochabamba and Santa Cruz.
