And he got help….
During a recent medical outreach we were approached and asked for medical assistance by a 80 year old man .
Although we are a Pediatric organization, it was impossible for us to say no to his request for help, after seeing the state of his legs.
We asked Dr Gideon van Wyk from Vein Solutions South Africa for assistance, and he immediately agreed to examine and treat our elderly patient totally free of charge.
Dr Gideon van Wyk a specialist surgeon, who is one of very few highly trained and skilled vein specialists in South Africa and his remarkable team, visits Nelspruit and White river every few months and this morning they conducted a thorough doppler examination and then treated our patient.
He will receive a follow up examination and treatment in November 2023.
Thank you very much Vein Solutions for your help and patient dedication, you are not only our patients hero, but ours too.
