The demand for trauma and orthopedic care in Punta de Mita and surrounding areas is high, but there are relatively few healthcare offices available to meet this need.
This shortage of resources can lead to longer wait times for appointments, delayed diagnoses, and inadequate treatment for patients with orthopedic injuries or conditions.
The PMH Foundation’s Ortho Brigade is a critical initiative that helps address this shortage of resources and improve access to orthopedic care for underserved communities.
By providing free medical services, such as consultations, diagnostic tests, and surgeries, the Ortho Brigade can help identify and treat orthopedic conditions in a timely and effective manner.
The Ortho Brigade can also help prevent further complications and disabilities associated with untreated orthopedic injuries or conditions. For example, prompt treatment of fractures or dislocations can help prevent long-term mobility issues or chronic pain.
In addition to providing medical services, the Ortho Brigade can also provide education and resources to help prevent orthopedic injuries or conditions.
By promoting healthy lifestyles, proper exercise techniques, and safety measures, the Ortho Brigade can help reduce the incidence of orthopedic injuries and improve overall health outcomes.
