Dominican Republic Trip-Dr. McLanahan

IHC’s pediatric neurosurgery team, led by Dr. Scott McLanahan, recently returned home to Charlotte, NC from their second mission trip to Robert Reid Cabral Children’s Hospital in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. In addition to following up on patients from their last mission, they evaluated 17 patients of which 9 received surgery. 

During Dr. McLanahan’s recent trip he was able to train Dr. Sonia Fermin, pediatric neurosurgeon at Robert Reid Cabral Children’s Hospital, and her residents on using endoscopic surgery equipment as well as instruct them on performing two complicated cranioplasty procedures. Overall this was a very successful trip!
