Club News Dunwoody Donates Operating Table to Haiti
The Rotary Club of Dunwoody recently supplied funding to provide a much
needed operating table to the Medical Clinic of Hope in Terre Blanche, Haiti.
The club's International Director Louise
Barden accompanied a US medical team to Haiti in November and assisted a
physician performing a minor surgery in the clinic’s operating room.
the table is adjustable, it provides positioning and support for a wide range
of procedures including cataract surgery, cyst excisions, gynecological and
other operations. Prior to obtaining this Operating Room Table, surgeries were performed on a hospital gurney which made
positioning patients difficult and required the surgeons to work in
uncomfortable positions for hours.
