Program 1

PRETRIP PLANNING WAS UNDERWAY IN 2019 FOR A TRIP TO GUYANA IN SPRING 2020. DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, THE TRIP WAS NOT CONDUCTED. EFFORTS ARE UNDERWAY TO PREPARE FOR FUTURE TRIPS. THE WOGO SURGEONS TRAVEL TO THE MISSION CITY FOR A PRE-TRIP SESSION WHERE THEY MEET WITH LOCAL SURGEONS AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS TO COORDINATE LOGISTICAL DETAILS. THEY WORK WITH LOCAL MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS TO SCREEN, EVALUATE AND TAKE X-RAYS OF POTENTIAL SURGICAL CANDIDATES. THE SURGEONS AND THE SUPPORT TEAM SPEND ABOUT A WEEK IN THE MISSION CITY. ALL SURGERIES ARE PERFORMED DURING THE FIRST FEW DAYS OF THE TRIP TO ENSURE THAT THE WOGO TEAM IS ON HAND TO MONITOR OUTCOMES AND TREAT ANY COMPLICATIONS. THE GOAL IS TO PERFORM AS MANY JOINT RECONSTRUCTION SURGERIES, AS TIME AND DONATIONS ALLOW. FOR PATIENTS, THE SURGICAL PROCEDURE INVOLVES PRE AND POST OPERATIVE PATIENT EDUCATION AND A TWO-TO-FOUR DAY STAY IN THE HOSPITAL. REHABILITATION IS THE FOCUS OF THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK. PHYSICAL THERAPISTS CONDUCT CLASSES FOR PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES TEACHING AND DEMONSTRATING SAFE TECHNIQUES. LOCAL PHYSICAL THERAPISTS ARE TRAINED TO CONTINUE THE HEALING PROCESS FOR THESE PATIENTS AFTER THE WOGO TEAM RETURNS TO THE UNITED STATES.THE SURGEONS AND TEAM MEMBERS PARTICIPATE IN AN OUTREACH ACTIVITY TOWARDS THE END OF EACH TRIP AFTER SURGURIES ARE COMPLETE. THIS IS USUALLY WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF ANOTHER NON-PROFIT AND ITS STAFF, SOULS4SOLES, DISTRIBUTING SHOES AND CLOTHING TO THOSE IN NEED.
