For people interested, I also make posts on my Earthwide Facebook page.
This is a handmade cycle by patrick Godet in France. He should have been a surgeon!
This is not hidradenitis suppurativa! This man had this condition for 5 years before seeing us. We performed a radical debridedment and found that there was pyomyositis. In addition, pus tracked under the inguinal ligament into the pelvis-probably necrotic lymph nodes. After the debridement, simple dressing changes with honey cleared all the infection. He will be skin grafted in November. By the way, the same procedure was necessary on his right buttocks.
This man required a radical parotidectomy for mucoepidermoid carcinoma. A pectoralis major myocutaneous flap was tthen used to close the defect. He is now receiving radiation.
This little child had a fast growing mass in the left orbit. We did an enucleation and the pathology showed retinoblastoma. The child is about to start chemotherapy and later, perhaps, radiation as well. Charlotte Jacobs, MD, at Stanford University, has been helping with post surgical treatment recommendation.
This delightful lady had a fungating breast cancer. She received 3 courses of chemotherapy followed by radical mastectomy. Ten days after surgery, Dr. Mishack Akunekwe and I performed a TRAM Flap. She is discharged home and doing well. Of course, she probably is not cured but her quality of life is astonishingly better. She will no longer have the smelly mass attached to her and be a pariah in her village.
