Re: Our Medical Experiences in Mexico

A few decades ago I took surgical residents down to Mexico to repair cleft lips and palates. We worked with a Mexican plastic surgeon, and had excellent rapport. We frequently sent him patients for cosmetic surgery. Everyone was happy with the arrangements.
The Mexican PS was injured in an automobile accident, and had to have his spleen removed by his friend, a gynecologist, who was the best qualified surgeon available. The gynecologist then had my friend the PS flown to our hospital in the states for recovery.
Those are the facts - you draw the conclusions.
