Volunteer Work – Shoulder Arthroscopy in Vietnam

DEAR SIR,

JULY 22ND IS THE 1-YEAR CELEBRATION OF MY FIRST SHOULDER SCOPE IN VIETNAM. I HAVE DONE 50 CASES, AND ARCHIVED SOME GOOD RESULTS. I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU THE HAPPINESS OF MY SUCCESS, AND EXTEND MY GRATEFULNESS TO YOU FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL AND OPPORTUNITY SUPPORT GIVEN TO ME FOR LONG TIME.

YOURS SINCERELY,

Dr. Nguyen's shoulder arthroscopy setup in Vietnam.

Recently, Dr. Anh Nguyen visited Dr. Stetson from Vietnam in order to observe his techniques and receive some training. Dr. Stetson donated arthroscopy equipment to Dr. Anh to take back to Vietnam. Below is an excerpt of a letter to Dr. Stetson from Dr. Nguyen as well as some pictures of Dr. Nguyen’s operating setup in Vietnam.

“We had the opportunity to visit your hospital and spend a short time observing your scope surgery cases in the OR, and you brought me interesting tips for Bankart and rotator cuff suture techniques, and especially donated a Dyonics shaver console and blades very valuable to my practice back home. Thanks to your help, I have been busy to set up shoulder arthroscopy in my hospital and I am the first surgeon to do shoulder scope in Vietnam, and have done 9 cases of ASAD, Bankart repair, SLAP and mini-open rotator cuff repair from July, 22nd.”
