Patients in Pueblo receive free surgeries

Uninsured Pueblo residents are receiving a $4,000 to $7,000 gift today as the Pueblo Surgery Center, Health4Haiti, the International Surgical Missions and Colorado Technical University work together to perform free surgeries as part of the annual Surgical Day of Giving event.

The procedures range from hernia repairs to cyst removals and are given at no cost to the patients who either lack health insurance or medical coverage, including Medicaid.  The event also serves as a learning tool for surgical tech and nursing students from CTU who are donating their time in exchange for real world experience.
