BWFH Physician Provides Urologic Care in Haiti

On recent trips to Jacmel, Haiti, to provide urologic care, Dr. Robert Eyre faced obstacles, like loss of electricity, that made performing surgery quite challenging.

“We had to carry in every piece of equipment–IV bag, suture, drape, gown, etc,” said Eyre, a Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital urologist. “The power frequently went off, and we had only one OR light that occasionally worked, so I wore a battery-powered headlamp to do all the surgeries.”
