On-Belay Medical Coordinates Medical Mission Partnership with Hospital in Kampala, Uganda
A team of On-Belay employees and surgeon customers traveled to Kampala, Uganda early this month to partner with local surgeons at Mulago Hospital, African Renewal Ministries and Wentz Medical Clinic to perform over 25 much needed complex spine and orthopedic surgeries. For the last 10 months, On-Belay Medical has been working with many of the company’s suppliers to gather donations of spine implants and instrumentation. These valuable supplies, not readily available in Uganda, were sent over on a container ship in April. The week was spent collaborating, teaching and performing surgeries that are less common in Uganda because of the limitation of the facilities and lack of necessary supplies. The intention of both teams is that this would be an on-going partnership between On-Belay Medical and the healthcare community in Uganda.
