Dominican Republic 2022
After having to cancel our trips to Guatemala and Costa Rica, we were finally able to run a full cardiac trip to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The trip took place at CEDIMAT Hospital and the patients were funded by the David Ortiz Children's Fund. It was an extremely successful mission. Working hand-in-hand with the local team, we performed seven open heart surgeries and one off pump procedure; two diagnostic catheterizations; seven interventional catheterizations, and two ablations. All patients are safely home with their families and looking forward to a future. Our team worked closely with the local team and a great deal of invaluable teaching took place.
