Over the last 15 years, SELF has been conducting Surgical and Medical Missions annually in the facility for the benefit of its neigboring community. The mission is a collaboration between SELF and Martin’s classmate, Dr. Vic Gisbert of Makati Medical Center, who brings with him doctors and nurses who extend their services for free. The services include Cyst removal, Circumcission, Tooth extraction, Diabetes screening and General consultation. Typically, around 30 doctors and nurses participate in the activity and, on the average, about 150 patients are treated within four hours. During the mission, SELF’s Multi-Purpose Hall is converted into a makeshift operating theater where everyday desks become operating tables. Selected residents assist in the undertaking by coordinating the influx of patients, following up after each surgery and prepping the tables for the next procedure. SELF is proud to work hand in hand with such selfless and dedicated professionals.
