First Aortic Aneurysm Repair in Guyana
Graduates of our IOP return to their communities and positively impact the way that healthcare is provided in their country. They use the knowledge and skills acquired in Canada to become healthcare leaders in their communities in many ways. They train future doctors and healthcare professionals, they teach in the university medical schools, they embark on research studies, they facilitate progress and change in the hospitals and they engage their patients in their healthcare journey.
The first surgical repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm was completed at the Georgetown Hospital in Guyana by Dr.Carlos Martin within months of his return to Guyana after spending a year in Canada honing his cardiovascular surgery skills.
