Dr. Abikahled returned from his medical mission with One World Surgery and is already looking forward to his next trip! Here's what he had to say about his time in Honduras.

"In a weeks time I performed 16 surgeries (hernia repairs and laparoscopic cholecystectomies) in addition to seeing patients in clinic. Our entire team, which included general surgery, orthopedics, gynecology and podiatry, performed more than 50 surgeries. Most of the patients have been waiting for several months or longer for their surgery and were so happy to receive care. We had a fantastic, hard working team who worked well together and was focused on delivering compassionate, high quality and safe surgical care. Our Honduran hosts made us feel so welcome!"

We are so proud to have you on our team Dr. Abikhaled!

Our very own Dr. John Abikhaled is in Honduras on a medical mission with One World Surgery at Nuestros Pequenos Hermanos (NPH) working alongside visiting surgical teams and Honduran colleagues to provide access to safe surgical care in various specialties to people who otherwise may be unable to find the treatment they desperately need. Great work, Dr. A!


Who else is ready for ?!? We are getting into the spirit here at Austin Surgeons.


Happy Friday! We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!


Many people hear the word surgery and envision large incisions and long recovery times. However, robotic surgery is a much less invasive option that offers faster recovery times and less risk of infection. Learn more about the benefits of robotic surgery for the patient and the surgeon in our latest blog.


Patients like Mrs. Foster are why we do what we do! At 99 years young, she thanked Dr. Meynig for a successful surgery by giving him a Man Crate.


Dr. Glover traveled to the American Hernia Society Annual Meeting in Charlotte last week to present on ‘Spectacar Cases’ and collaborate with colleagues from across the U.S., and may have snuck in some fun at the Nascar Hall Of Fame League while he was there.
