DeckerMed Outreach Clinic, Mjini Village, Meru County
Patient 89, a 53-year-old woman with abdominal pain reported being operated SEVEN TIMES previously for a hernia. Physical exam and ultrasound confirmed adhesions and mesh migration. DeckerMed referred her to MeruTeaching & Referral Hospital where surgery was performed by Dr. Elias Nyaga. “The hernia was repaired with Prolene mesh and the abdominal wall was reconstructed. The outcome was successful and Mrs returned to her village. She resumed her work as an entrepreneur and life as a grandmother of two.” DeckerMed Africa Trust covered the entire cost, as the patient was without NHIF insurance and her need for treatment was compelling.
