The next humanitarian surgical trip to Nigeria is january. patients are already lining up and jockying for position. It is a country where many never get the basics of what they need, so when an opportunity arises, they fight hard to get it. This is especially true with health care. When I tell a patients they will get surgery, many don't believe me until they are actually on the operating table. So you can be sure I make no promises until I am sure i can fulfill them-just to avoid a riot! We are ready and hopefully, no one will be disappointed.
