Making an Impact
Since 2009, a team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, social workers, and other healthcare providers from hospitals in India and the U.S. have worked together to help more children in Asia and Africa receive the complex surgery necessary to address bladder exstrophy.
This video beautifully captures the collaboration between A-BE-C, Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Cincinnati Children’s, Dayton Children’s, and Seattle Children’s, and the combined efforts to make an impact on the lives of children and families living with exstrophy.
More stories from our work in India
Since 2014, A-BE-C has participated in the Annual Operative Workshop on Exstrophy and Episadias Complex at Civil Hospital in Ahmedabad, India.
A-BE-C has created a unique model where we not only sponsor children needing medical care, but we also arrange for the child’s physician to attend the workshop to receive education and training to continue postoperative care in their home country.
