SURGICAL AID FOUNDATION IN COLLABORATION WITH KELINA MEDICAL LIMITED IS ORGANISING ITS ANNUAL SURGICAL OUTREACH PROGRAMME FOR 2021

 

THEME: EXPANDING ACCESS TO MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY

 

Kelina Hospital in collaboration with Surgical Aid Foundation has been supporting financially challenged citizens in need of minimal access surgery here in Nigeria each year since 2011.

 

This year, we are working to expand the access Nigerians have to healthcare, despite the economic challenges of the times. Advancement in medicine has made surgical procedures a lot safer. Due to economic factors, the number of Nigerians who can access high-quality healthcare has reduced. Through the surgical aid program, Kelina Hospital is helping overcome location and financial constraints to accessing quality healthcare.

 

The surgeries will begin on November 8, 2021.

The free tests and screening will begin on October 25, 2021.

A 2nd programme will hold in Victoria Island, Lagos, in March 2022.

 

The Subsidized Surgeries covered in this year’s programme include:

. Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP).

. Laser Lithotripsy for Kidney stones(RIRS, URS, or PCNL).

. Transurethral Resection of the Prostate(TURP).

. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy for Gall stones; other General Surgery Cases.

. Laparoscopic Surgery for uterine fibroids; other Gynaecological cases.

. Penile implant surgery for Erectile Dysfunction.

. Artificial urethral sphincter for urinary incontinence

. Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery; other ENT cases.

- Other select Orthopedic and Minimally Invasive Surgical procedures.

-There will also be:

. Free Dental Checks and discounted dental procedures.

. Free PSA tests for males over 40 years of age.

. Free Prostate ultrasound scan for males over 40 years of age.

 

 

The programme is also targeted at our patients who earlier received a bill for surgery but could not come for their treatment due to the inability to raise the fees. During this programme, the same surgery will be done at 50% of the earlier surgery fee. The cost of other items is not discounted. Other individuals who have never before presented for surgery can join this programme. Only Minimally Invasive procedures will be considered, as has been the practice since 2011. Prospective participants should reach out to the contact persons if in doubt about the coverage of any procedure. Over 500 patients have benefitted from free tests and over 200 have benefited from subsidized surgeries since 2011.
