It is symbolic that this year the large Western Diaspora is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the resettlement of the first Ukrainians to Canada. Nevertheless, for most of them, Ukraine was and remains the second home where the youth was spent, the parents rested, and the roots of the family tree continue. Clear organization, calmness and coherence were observed in the work of the team of Canadian doctors. Apparently, only the language barrier was a minor obstacle, but it was also leveled by joint efforts.

Canadian doctors represent the country’s leading medical institutions, including the hospitals of Sunnybrook (Toronto) and Hamilton (Ontario), and their high professionalism and rich practical experience are undeniable.

Each of the patients was measured blood pressure, heart rate, collected complaints and medical history, filled out the developed form. Thus, each patient received an individual number, according to which the information base was formed, the plan of surgical interventions depending on the complexity and volume, the need to make fixing or protective thermoplastic splints, tires, training with a physiotherapist.

From February 22 to 26, 2016, a daily team of Canadian physicians together with Ukrainian doctors performed operations in the abdominal surgery department of the National Military Clinical Center “GVKG”. Forty patients were operated on for reconstructive and restorative interventions on the bones of the facial and cerebral skull, aesthetic and cosmetic operations (rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, removal of scarring, etc.), operations on the hand, its joints, tendons, nerve transplantation, local plastic surgery.

Impressive physical endurance of Canadian colleagues with daily 9-10 hours of intense concentrated work in the operating room and department. By the way, taking care of their own ergonomics and comfort, each member of the Canadian team had sports shoes, most of them have long been involved in various sports, enjoy active recreation (plastic surgeon Mark was professionally engaged in hockey, nurse Lisa – kayaking). And another of their secrets is an incredibly positive and friendly mood both in communication with patients and colleagues.
