Quote: “I have successfully dealt with all kinds of uncontrolled situations now and my first step, after applying pressure and making sure anesthesia knows we’re in trouble, is to call for the Thompson retractor. If it’s not in place already…”
– Richard E. Davis MD FACS, Consultant General Surgeon, Program Director, General Surgery Residency AIC Kijabe Hospital
“Our mission is to provide surgeons, who volunteer their services around the world to the less privileged, with the instruments that make life saving operations possible.”
Thompson Surgical Instruments understands this need and we are pleased to donate Thompson Retractors to these dedicated men and women. Health care providers who work with patients in Third World countries, including missionary surgeons and those employed by community hospitals, are called on to perform complex surgeries in challenging environments with limited resources.
When you upgrade your old Thompson Retractor System to a new model, we refurbish the old equipment and prepare it for shipping to hospitals in need. If you would like to join us in the Foundation’s efforts, or to find out if you may be eligible to receive a donation, please contact Josh Delickta at 1.800.227.7543 (outside USA +1-231-922-0177), or by email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your support, we look forward to hearing from you.
