for orthopaedic and cardiothoracic surgeons and anaesthetists/intensivists
Hasan was born with a club foot. Despite previous surgery, his foot was severely deformed as an adult. A recycled circular fixator from the UK corrected his foot position – equipment and surgery not available in his country. The cost would have been prohibitive, and this type of surgery had never been performed in his country before.
Hasan can now wear normal shoes and walk normally – allowing him to work and provide for his family.
