Global Surgical Volunteer Message from Dr. Pattisapu

Global Surgical Volunteer Message from Dr. Pattisapu

Dear colleagues, 

Thank you to all who updated their contact information for the FIENS Global Surgical Volunteer program. We appreciate your interest in working with FIENS as a volunteer. All activities naturally slowed down due to the pandemic and with renewed hope, we are starting again!

Our initial task has been to tabulate all the available opportunities and volunteers to resume the work. Fortunately, new centers have expressed a need for volunteers to set up neurosurgical services in their locations. This provides a great opportunity to teach, learn and serve… 

If you have not yet done so, we humbly request your confirmation of contact information, availability, and any specific interests or areas of service. Please fill out any new information and include your field(s) of interest – i.e., Trauma/Vascular/Pediatric/Spine, etc.) on this form.

Thank you in advance. We look forward to working with you to bring your experience to our partner countries and organizations throughout the world. Feel free to email me at with Volunteer Program in the subject line.
