Growth

 Shuzz Medical Mission launched their Medical Relief Department in February and performed their first surgery on a four-year-old boy named Akem from Guyana. Akem and his Mother  travelled to the United States for Akem to receive world class medical treatment at Bethesda Hospital in Boynton Beach, FL. One of the Shuzz Board Members conducted the surgery.

Akem’s ailments included internal tibial torsion, bowlegged and metatarsus adductus. In order to ensure he is able to walk, play, run, etc. for the rest of his life, the Shuzz Fund coordinated a bilateral tibial osteotomies surgery for Akem. Dr. Jodi Schoenhaus Gold, Shuzz Board Member, diagnosed him a few months ago in Guyana and on Monday February 16th, she successfully completed his surgery at Bethesda Hospital.
