Cleft can no more pose a threat to the budding dreams.
We are glad to declare the resounding success of our Siliguri Surgery Camp at Kejriwal Stone Clinic and Kidney Care Centre where we performed 42 Smile surgeries in just 6 days.
It was no less a nostalgia for us, as it took us back to the journey when we opened this outreach centre in the year 2013 with a small medical team. Today, we run this kind of camp in every alternative month with the focus of transforming cleft to smile.
The team of smile givers included: Dr. Partha Sadhu (Plastic Surgeon), Dr. Goutam Sarkar (Anaesthetist), Subhankar Saha (Coordinator, Mission Smile). We take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to the above mentioned doctors, coordinator and volunteers without whose support we might not have achieved this much!
Before the surgery, the ground work conducted was exhaustive.
Patients Recruitment Activity Organized for this Program
Two consecutive pre-screening camps were organized at Islampur and Katihar where our patient recruitment motivators convinced and brought around 10 to 15 patients from West Bengal and Bihar. Finally, our medical team successfully completed 42 surgeries out of total 61 patients.
We acknowledge all the staff members of the hospital for their whole-hearted cooperation and commitment towards the cause of this program. We greatly look forward to work there again.
