A critical member of the Lutheran HealthCare team in Honduras is otolaryngologist Ramez Habib, M.D. The New York Honduran Committee, the group that Lutheran partners with each year, informed the Telan community that an ENT expert would be accompanying the team.
It was quickly evident when we arrived that there we many Telans suffering from a variety of ear nose and throat issues. After examining dozens of young children on Sunday, Dr. Habib was able to schedule six surgeries for Monday.
One of them, 8-year-old Christopher Flowers, who lives in the nearby town called Barrio Way, was having tonsils issues. After a visit with Dr. Habib Sunday morning, he was admitted to the hospital and by 9 a.m. the next day, his tonsils were removed.
