Hey, I'm impressed by your accomplishments and you should be proud. Not to take away from the work that these groups do, but I've worked in remote communities that have been visited by the Operation Smile team... They're pretty much abandoned post-op without any reliable followup. I trained in a trauma center so I'm ok dealing with some, but not most of these complications, but alot of these doctors who spend real time (years) with the communities are GPs. Can you comment on the risk/reward of operating on these patients, and the actual capacity they have to consent?
