Negros Occidental (26 January) -- Thousands of indigent patients from all over the province underwent the whole day screening recently in preparation for the Philippine Minnesotan Medical Mission Association (PMMMA).

The medical team headed by mission coordinator Dr. Bernard Quebral will conduct free major and minor surgical operations such as thyroidectomy, hysterectomy, oophorectomies, tubal ligation, excision of cysts and masses, herniorrhaphy, total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oopherectomy (TAHBSO), hernia repair, and other procedures.

All medical services will be free of charge and will include laboratory tests, free medicines and post-operational medications.

Meanwhile, Negros Occidental Governor Isidro P. Zayco, Dr. Quebral and Dr. Ramon Gustilo of the Arnag Foundation have signed the deed of donation of the medical equipment and supplies donated by the PMMMA at Cadiz District Hospital.

The donated items include anesthesia machines, ultra sound machines, ECG, cardiac monitors, hospital beds, wheelchairs, electro-cautery machines, surgical ortho tables, suction machines, medicines, and laboratory supplies, among others.
