teach one. heal many.
Urogenital injuries are a significant factor in trauma-induced morbidity and mortality.
Worldwide, trauma is currently the sixth leading cause of death, accounting for 10% of mortalities
One of the urogenital diseases treated through reconstructive urology surgery is urethral strictures.
The Dominican Republic has high rates of trauma (ranks 2nd in the world in fatalities from traffic accidents) and subsequent urethral injury
Through this fellowship, we are restoring lives impacted by trauma-induced injuries in a country where there were no urologists with formal training in reconstructive surgery.
With local organizations and committed medical volunteers, we established the first accredited reconstructive urology fellowship in the Dominican Republic
