Surgical Training For Our Global FamilyCaring for the patient helps one patient, training the surgeon helps thousands of patients.
MENTORS OF THE WEEK
We asked a couple of the mentors in our Ohana (family) to share their reasons for mentoring through our program, and we are excited to share their insights with you.
“I mentor because I find it so gratifying to know that I can help patients I will never meet through the eyes and hands of the surgeons I train.”
– Dr. Marc Levitt, MD
Ohana One recognized that there is a critical shortage of surgeons, especially in low and middle income countries (LMIC), largely in part due to surgeons being under-resourced and not having mentors and/or education to receive the proper training. Ohana One continuously aims to bridge global gaps in surgical care with the Surgical Sight Program, in which they utilize Vuzix M400 smart glasses to offer year-round, high-quality, and individualized remote surgical training.
Ohana One is excited to release our annual report, representing a snapshot of 2021’s progress, results, and outcomes. This report and all our critical surgical training would not have been possible without you, our incredible and dedicated supporters.
The Future Looks Bright

Ohana One cultivates surgical training programs in developing areas around the world and we do so in collaboration with like-minded organizations.
