CURE Intl - Orthopedic Excellence

The quality of the reconstructive surgical program we have today is a direct result of the collaboration with our partner CURE International.  CURE is a christian organization that operates nearly a dozen teaching hospitals in developing nations around the world with a focus on surgical treatments for children with disabilities and deformities.  Their experience in operating hospitals in the developing world and providing top quality care in challenging environments has been invaluable in our earthquake relief efforts.  CURE has provided world renowned experts in reconstructive surgery to serve the needs of earthquake victims.  We have developed a reputation in the country of Haiti as a tertiary referral center for a variety of complex orthopedic cases.  CURE's Haiti Medical Director Dr. Scott Nelson is also a Loma Linda University School of Medicine clinical faculty and alum.

CURE has had an orthopedic program in Haiti for a number of years prior to January's earthquake.  The existence of this program pre-quake benefited us greatly by providing in-country knowledge, experience, and resources.  CURE has provided invaluable logistical and supply resources such as:
  • In-country logistics coordinator (Mr. Phil Hudson)
  • Air and ground transportation
  • Shelving units
  • Orthopedic surgical equipment
  • Surgical nursing staff from their Dominican hospital
  • Multiple international volunteer teams
  • Volunteer coordination (Erin, Heather, Robbie)

THANK YOU CURE INTERNATIONAL for all of your help here at the Hopital Adventiste!

  2. I live in Redlands, CA and we have 2 adult sized sets of crutches in the garage plus a walker. This equipment was used when we had surgery, first my husband and then myself, and it is just sitting in the garage gathering cobwebs. Is there any way I can donate this stuff?

  5. In course of a normal day, a orthopedic technologist works with doctors, patients, bones and joints. Hospitals in third world countries around the world with a focus on surgical treatments for children with problems and penile deformation, may include time in the operating room. The technical nature of this work and a common certification requirement by make qualifications a need to obtain career and advance within the area.Orthopedic Instruments
