2016 MEXICO MISSION
What would you do if you could not get foot or ankle care? In central Mexico, near San Miguel De Allende, there are thousands that do not have access to any care at all. Six years ago, a group of podiatric surgeons from Texas adopted this city to provide much needed care for free to the indigent people. Volunteers pay their own travel, but funds are raised each year to cover costs of medical equipment, supplies, medicines, anesthesia and shoes. Dr. Don Falknor of Houston is current Foundation President and was Mission Team Leader for 2014.
Thank you to all the volunteers & sponsors for the 2014 mission! 350 patients treated plus 80 children received new shoes at the orphanages. TPMF with the help of Stryker & BAKO , sponsored 6 residents to travel to the mission for 2014! They get the most rewarding experience and opportunity to train with other doctors.
2014 MISSION SPONSORS:
BAKO, STRYKER, GORDON LABS, AMERX, MD BUYING GROUP, FORMULA 3, METASURG & BAYLOR SCOTT & WHITE FOUNDATION
Patients came from the surrounding villages and San Miguel area. There is nothing more rewarding then having a 50 year old man hug you and thank you for making him able to walk without pain, so he can walk 10 miles to work in the fields and feed his family. Participating in a mission to those less fortunate helps all of us have new perspective and appreciate what we do have.
