International Connections - Research and future development
Operation Hernia has identified synergistic organizations providing surgical care in Africa.
Andrew Kingsnorth has built North American collaborations with the American College of Surgeons (Operation GivingBack) and the Global Burden of Surgical Disease organization and is interested in research comparing the Operation Hernia model to other successful international mechanisms of hospital care provision.
Operation Hernia has popularized the use of mosquito net mesh for the repair of inguinal hernias and written several papers for learned journals on the topic. The Operation Hernia strength is in its rotation support from both industry and political organizations, which provide opportunities for rural doctors to train in England as well.
