Operation Straight Spine: scoliosis surgeries for patients in need
The Emirates Airline Foundation sponsored US-based organisation Operation Straight Spine on their recent mission to provide spinal surgeries to patients in need in Kolkata, India. Operation Straight Spine provides spinal surgeries and medical services to socially deprived and underprivileged individuals who cannot afford or do not have access to such services. The two-week mission delivered successful surgeries to dozens of patients with complex spinal maladies, mainly scoliosis. Working at the Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, the team of volunteer surgeons from both the US and the UK, worked alongside local medical professionals, sharing knowledge and expertise.
