The Australia and New Zealand Interplast team

Interplast team visit to Tonga a Success

A total of 100 patients were consulted by the interplast team and 35 procedures were carried out.

Loporto said the response from the local team was positive and the program allowed the ongoing development of relationships with the local surgical and nursing staff by team members on return visits.

Loporto also commended the hard work of the staff at Vaiola Hospital for a good coordination of the program and the initial identification of the patients for surgery.
