As a result of the mission, the fifth of its kind, over 100 patients were seen and treated during the course of the six-day visit, which included 50 surgeries. The humanitarian effort was led by Mitchell Humphreys, MD, a urologist with the Mayo Clinic and sponsored by the non-profit organization GSD, with Lumenis technology playing an integral role onsite.
