Thank you to Dr. Diane Sklar, Dr. Robert Karoukian, Dr. Arturo Martinez and the Kaiser staff for transforming a life! In this unprecedented case, Esperança with the help of Dr. Sklar, Dr. Karoukian, Dr. Martinez and Kaiser Permanente, we were able to bring Margarita, a 42 year old woman fromm Nicaragua to the San Francisco to undergo a much needed procedure to repair a fistula that could not be repaired in Nicaragua. Two weeks ago Margarita underwent the surgery that lasted a full three hours! The procedure was a grand success and now all the complications Margarita was facing have been repaired.
These past two weeks have been a strict regime for Margarita to ensure a full recovery. In that time she has not been alone on her journey to recovery, Luis our Nicaraguan partner staff member has been there every step of the way to offer support. Now we are pleased to say that Margarita and Luis have safely arrived to their homes in Nicaragua! Finally we want to thank everyone for their support that allowed this amazing journey to become a reality! For more information about Margarita and her trip click here
