Right now we have 35 Ethiopians in Ghana for spine surgery. 22 have had surgery and are recovering, and 13 are in traction to slowly stretch their spines before corrective surgery. We are now dealing with the most complex and deformed spine patients on the planet, and able to give them back their lives.
These brave kids leave their families and spend months in traction and therapy before undergoing surgery which can last 14 hours by the finest surgeons in the world.
This is creating important new knowledge about complex spine disease and how it can be treated. We are setting a world record: our sources
inform us that NOBODY on the planet has 13 kids in traction right now!
Please continue your support!
