Medics on a Mission, Inc. is a registered, tax exempt, non-profit organization.
Our story....The first mission trip was back in November, 2009 at St Ann’s Bay Hospital, Jamaica. Urologists, Dr Bruce Kava and Dr Tasha Cooke, were the first surgeons to volunteer. The surgeries performed were Transurethral prostate resections (TURPs) and urethral slings for patients with prostate enlargement and urinary incontinence. In 2010 and 2011 our group returned to perform more desperately needed TURPs, to repair urethral strictures, and for the first time, in 2010 we carried out upper and lower endoscopies.
MISSION TRIP 2013 HAS WRAPPED! It was a great success! We performed several firsts, including a radical prostatectomy and buccal/sublingual urethroplasties. We also carried out other prostate resections, among other surgeries. Finally, we held our first ever Regional Anesthesia workshop, which was extraordinarily well received!

Now we move on to planning for 2014. We are so inspired. There is a lot more to do!
