CORNEAL TRANSPLANT TEAM PLANNING ANOTHER VISIT TO GEORGETOWN PUBLIC HOSPITAL 21st September 2015 The Subraj Foundation Transplantation Team will be visiting Guyana on its 23rd Mission. They are expected here during the first part of October from 8th to 11th 2015. The transplant team will be here to assess patients to perform a series of Corneal Transplant Surgeries at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. The team headed by Dr. Rahul Jindal has been previously coming to Guyana with a record of already performing 26 kidney transplants and 17 corneal transplants in Guyana. The first set 6 of corneal transplants were done in August 2014. The second set of 11 corneal transplants were done at the Georgetown Public Hospital in July 2015. Similar to their last mission (just about 3 months ago) the team from the USA will comprise three physicians – Dr. Rahul Jindal along with two Corneal Tranplant Surgeons – Dr. Stephen Waller and Dr. Joseph Pasternak. They will be accompanied by members of the Subraj Foundation Transplantation Team and Mr George Subraj. They hope to complete another 10 corneal transplant surgeries during this visit. According to Dr. Shailendra Sugrim, Head of Department of Ophthalmology, over the past two months, the Department of Ophthalmology has been following up the patients from the last visit and all the patients have been doing very well. We have also been generating a new list of patients that will be seen by the team for the next set of corneal transplants. The team usually brings the donor corneas with them along with special microsurgical ophthalmic instruments to perform these surgeries. The visiting Corneal Specialists will work along with local ophthalmologists to perform the surgeries. The cornea – the clear “glass-window” of the eye - refracts light and allows the entrance of light into the eye and this enables us to see. Any disorder that makes the cornea cloudy or opacified can cause severe visual impairment. Many patients who become blinded by corneal opacities or disorders can regain their sight via corneal transplants. The GPHC Department of Ophthalmology is also encouraging any patient who have been previously recommended for corneal transplants by ophthalmologists to come to the GPHC Eye Clinic with the letter of recommendation from their ophthalmologist along with all investigations that have been previously done.
