Training in Minimally-Invasive and Laparoscopic Surgery

Africa Partners Medical volunteers Drs. Juliane Bingener-Casey and Kaye Reid Lombardo have been conducting training workshops in minimally-invasive and laparoscopic surgery at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana for the past several years. This year Dr. Adam Gyedu from KATH presented a poster on the outcomes of the first 25 patients receiving laparoscopic cholecystectomies at KATH between 2010 and 2012 at the annual meeting of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) in Baltimore, Maryland.
