Addis Ababa, 29 April 2014 (WIC) – A team of leading spinal surgeons from Nottingham University Hospital–Queen’s Medical Centre went to Ethiopia this weekend to collaborate with local surgical teams and perform much needed spinal surgical procedures at three hospitals.
The team of eight healthcare professionals led by Dr Mekdim Tsegaye, an Ethiopian spinal neurosurgeon, consists of spinal surgeons, operating theatre practitioners and a physiotherapist.
They will be in Ethiopia for two weeks and will be based at Black Lion Hospital and Addis Hiwot Hospital in Addis Ababa and the Adama General Hospital in Oromia Regional State.
This surgical trip is the first of many regular trips planned for the future.
In an interview, the team thanked the Ethiopian Embassy for their assistance and also extended appreciation to the Embassy, which played a pivotal role in the facilitation of the trip.
The team works under the umbrella of iSpine Clinic that was established by an experienced group of Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Spine Surgeons, all of whom have completed their Basic and Higher Specialist training in the United Kingdom.
They are recognized leaders in the field of Spinal Surgery, tackling both simple and complex problems affecting the Spine. (ethiosports.com)
