Ohana One, is making a significant impact in the lives of children worldwide by providing access to advanced medical care through their groundbreaking Surgical Sight Program. With the use of this technology, doctors can collaborate and operate together without the need for costly and time-consuming travel.
Consider the heart-wrenching story of a 5-year-old child who suffered severe burns to both hands three years ago after accidentally placing them in boiling water. The road to recovery seemed daunting, but thanks to the collaboration facilitated by Ohana One’s remote technology, Dr. Seif Nuru and Dr. Chris Conner were able to join forces and provide the best possible care for the young patient.
Dr. Nuru faced a complex case involving a young patient born with a large cyst hygroma, a benign multilocular cyst that hindered eating and normal growth. Through the combined efforts of Dr. Nuru and his team, the surgery was a resounding success, giving the child hope for a better future. Dr. Conner, through the use of smart glasses, was able to observe and participate remotely, providing valuable insights and boosting the surgical team’s confidence.
Dr. Conner humbly acknowledges Dr. Nuru’s expertise while recognizing the small but significant role he played in the surgery. This collaboration demonstrates the power of leveraging technology to bridge geographical barriers and facilitate knowledge sharing, ultimately benefiting patients, especially children, who require specialized care.
In another heartening example, Dr. Kulber, along with U.S. fellows Dr. Deptula and Dr. Turk, is teaching local plastic surgeon Dr. Fatima and resident Dr. Arscha in complex bilateral flexion contracture of the wrist, hands, and fingers. This procedure aims to help a burn patient heal and regain functionality. Typically, patients in similar situations face a wait time of 2-3 years, with some never receiving the treatment they desperately need. Ohana One’s technology reduces these waiting times, ensuring that children no longer have to endure prolonged suffering or lose a lifetime of opportunities.
Ohana One is committed to supporting children worldwide. Leveraging remote technology, and the expertise of volunteer surgical mentors, we are empowering doctors in underserved areas with the ability to access expertise, collaborate with mentors, and provide high-quality care to their patients. This innovative approach to healthcare is breaking down barriers and bringing hope to children who deserve timely and effective medical interventions.
As Ohana One continues to expand its reach our dedication to improving healthcare outcomes for children remains unwavering. Our unwavering pursuit of innovation serves as a beacon of hope for children around the globe, fostering a brighter and healthier future for all.
