Mandela Day – Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy

This Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy forms part of a drive to provide expert medical attention to the most vulnerable of our community.
Mandela Day – Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy
Pro bono surgery as part of the Operation Healing Hands Initiative

This commendable non-profit organization provides surgery to patients who cannot afford private health care.

In support of this worthy initiative, Dr Jeske together with a team of anaesthetists and medical assistants devoted their time and expertise at no cost to 2 selected patients, who had no financial means nor medical aid and were in dire need of a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.

The aim is to address the medical service problem in South Africa by providing a platform for medical professionals in the private sector to help relieve the burden on state hospitals and improve the quality of life for as many patients as possible. All the medical personnel involved, from surgeons to the rehab teams, work pro bono whilst certain private hospitals sponsor most of the theatre time and in-hospital stay.
