Forward in Health orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fabian and family practitioner Dr. Harrington traveled to Haiti to surgically repair a man’s leg fractured in the earthquake. Andre is the father of infant twin girls. His left lower leg was fractured in the earthquake and surgery was performed by Dr. Fabian in April. We were unable to obtain an x-ray until several weeks after the surgery.
The x-ray showed that a second operation would be necessary to be certain that Andre could walk and return to work as a mason.
Dr. Fabian returned to Haiti and Dr. Harrington served as his anesthesiologist. This surgery was felt to be a 100% success.
Nicola, a medical student from Scotland working with Dr. Fabian, was also on the trip.
