Belize hosts first Caribbean College of Surgeons annual meeting

Posted: Sunday, July 16, 2023. 8:36 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Belize made a big step forward in medical history last week. It hosted the 21st annual meeting of the Caribbean College of Surgeons for the first time. The best surgeons from the Caribbean were in Belize, sharing knowledge, coming up with new ideas, and doing surgeries not done before in Belize.

The conference was held at the Belize Biltmore. The head of the Caribbean College of Surgeons, Dr. Cawich, said it was a huge event for surgical skills, covering all kinds of surgeries.

Hosting this event was good for Belize. Local surgeons learned about new ways to do surgery, with modern techniques and equipment. The Belizean surgeons also got to work closely with their peers from the Caribbean. This means the whole region can improve their surgical skills together.

Members of the Caribbean College also did surgeries at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize. These were surgeries that hadn’t been done before in Belize, and they were free for the patients.

Dr. Lisa Johnson, a general and trauma surgeon, said the conference was about surgeons learning from each other and giving patients the best care possible. She said sharing knowledge is a key part of being a doctor. The conference was also a chance for the surgeons to work together, be professional, and improve the quality of life for patients in the region.
