Africa Surgery is routinely confronted with cases of abdominal pain and urinary difficulties, which often need to be referred to hospitals for medical and/or surgical treatment.
The most frequent operation is hernia, with over 500 people treated so far and hundreds patiently waiting for their turn. A hernia operation in Sierra Leone costs between $125 and $150, completely funded by Africa Surgery for eligible patients.
Other surgeries include appendectomies and urinary blockages. OBGYN problems are screened and referred to One Women’s World Health in Sierra Leone.
