The Project Medishare neurosurgery team returned to Haiti this past Saturday for a neurological assessment at La Paix Hospital in Port-au-Prince. The team assessed 67 cases of children with various neurological problems such as hydrocephalus, micro-cephalic, brain tumors and spinal bifida. The team saw 57 new cases. The doctors had 35 cases that would benefit from surgery out of the 57; unfortunately the team can only select 25 cases when they return to perform surgeries in the summer.
