The 14th Military Hospital, in partnership with Liberia Medical Relief, has initiated a series of orthopedic procedures aimed at young children around the country.
This orthopedic procedure is designed for youngsters who have bow legs and are unable to walk normally. The musculoskeletal system—the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles that are so important to movement and everyday life—is the focus of orthopedic surgery.
Dr. Kelvin Strathy, a medical consultant at the 14th Military Hospital, told reporters on Thursday that roughly 15 youngsters had been successfully treated on through the conduct of orthopedic surgery.
According to Dr. Strathy, the team of medical practitioners performing the procedure is also transferring advanced information to two specialized doctors in the field assigned to the John F. Kennedy Medical Facility as part of the exercise.
However, he stated that his team of professionals will do additional surgeries in the future, citing the success of prior work.
Outpatient treatments, obstetric services, general surgical services, and emergency care are all available at the 14th Military Hospital.
On February 11, 2018, President Weah committed to build a 200-bed military hospital for use by military and paramilitary personnel while speaking to servicemen and women during the 61st Anniversary of the Armed Forces of Liberia.
President Weah kept his word by constructing the 14th military hospital and dedicating it as a historic project on September 1, 2021. Only five of the 75 acres allotted are used for this well equipped military health center.
