Dr. Almekinders recently returned from a trip to Tanzania, Africa where he volunteered his orthopaedic expertise and skill for several weeks at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center in Moshe, Tanzania

At Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center in Moshe, Tanzania Dr. Almekinders lectured to orthopaedic surgeons, performed numerous operations on patients with complex orthopaedic problems and attended ward rounds and orthopaedic outpatient clinics to provide advice when needed. Dr. Almekinders stated that the trip was rewarding but hugely challenging at the same time. The combination of complex, severe orthopaedic problems in a medical environment with limited equipment and resources created a situation where he had to improvise and come up with innovative solutions on multiple occasions. The volunteer trip was undertaken under the auspices of Health Volunteers Overseas a Washington, DC based non-governmental organization.
