Special Surgeries

Over 200 needy Nigerians have received hip and knee replacements and bone fracture repairs through our medical missions.

In addition, we donated a SIGN Fracture Care System to a university teaching hospital in Anambra State and trained local Nigerian surgeons on its use.  They now repair serious bone fractures in a simple, inexpensive and sustainable way.

In 2018, we extended our reach to laparoscopic surgery.  We performed minimally-invasive gallbladder, hernia and appendix surgeries on poor patients, trained local surgeons, and donated specialized equipment and instruments.

Partnerships

Our missions are led by skilled, compassionate American medical professionals from all over the country. Not only do they donate their time and expertise, they also personally raise funds to help cover mission expenses.

Zimmer Biomet and Medacta International, global orthopedic equipment manufacturers, have donated over $3 million thus far in equipment, instruments and cash for our missions.

United Airlines has donated free flights to previous missions. NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon and the Golden State Warriors have provided free sports apparel to our patients and their families.

Our team finally ended his agony during our October 2013 mission. In November 2014 and April 2015, GEANCO’s leadership also donated much-needed general medical supplies and equipment to hospitals in southeast Nigeria.
