Surgery

Fieldset
Surgery

From urgent surgery after a bomb blast in a war zone to emergency caesarean sections for women with complicated deliveries, our skilled surgical teams perform tens of thousands of life-saving operations every year.
The work falls into four major categories: infection/wound surgery, war surgery/major trauma, obstetric surgery and specialised constructive surgery.
Equipment and anaesthetic drugs vary according to the nature of the project. Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) surgeons and anaesthetists may find themselves working in a state-of-the-art facility, a mobile surgical unit or a temporary inflatable hospital.
