Congenital limb defects treated in Poland

2017-11-02 12:12:59

In 2017 we have launched a new medical programme, which aims to buy equipment and software for two clinics specializing in paediatric orthopaedics. The National Programme of Bone Extension and Treating Bone Defects in Children aims to eliminate the need to operate children suffering from congenital limb defects abroad. Operations and subsequent treatment in privately-owned clinics often exceed financial capabilities of the child's guardians, prompting them to run crowdfunding campaigns to finance the stay at a hospital overseas. 

Our research shows that in many cases the operations can be performed in Poland - that's why we decided to support two clinics, where parents can seek advice and help before resorting to taking their child abroad. 

Surgery equipment and specialistic software, as well as stabilizing frames necessary in the process of post-surgery treatment of limb defects in children, have been donated to clinics in Otwock and Poznań. 

We believe that the state-of-the-art devices will allow our highly competent and qualified doctors help children in Poland.
