Patient waiting list

In June 2008, the Fund conducted a local consultation for more than three hundred poor and unlucky kids suffering from deformities in Ben Tre Province, with the support of the Department of Labour, Invalidity and Social Affairs of the province, of the Nguyen Dinh Chieu General Hospital of Ben Tre and of the Fund's volunteer doctors from FV Hospital such as Dr. Le Tan Son, Dr. Tran Thanh Tri and Dr. Phan Thi Ngoc Linh.
After the consultation, the doctors initially selected one hundred and seventeen operable cases with problems such as bowed limbs, scoliosis, facial tumor, polydactylia, ectrodactylia, syndactyly, anotia and aural atresia, phimosis, inguinal hernia, hypospadias, cryptorchidism and scars due to severe burns, hip joint osteoarthritis, osteogenesis imperfecta, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, limb ankylosis, limb retraction among other conditions.

Children born with congenital deformities (that must be severe but at the same time curable) giving rise to problems of the five following types:

  • Urological
  • Abdominal
  • Thoracic
  • Orthopedics
  • Maxillo-Facial

And also those with acquired problems due to accidents (such as burns) or diseases (such as poliomyelitis)

The last step is to select the prior surgeries according to this following condition:

  1. Severity of condition
  2. Degree of improvement possible
  3. Possibility of recovery
  4. Degree to which anatomy can be improved
