Screening Clinic

As is the tradition, the first day is spent seeing all the patients our local hosts have identified as possible candidates for surgey.  After a nice breakfast we headed to the hospital which is about a mile away.
Hospital Cayetano Heredia

There were about 120 patients to be seen. It always amazes me how patient they are it takes most of the day to see them all. Many are not candidates for surgery and we must explain why we cannot do their surgery. This often takes longer than the ones we are able to help.
