FRIEND OF SGU, DR. PHILIP FIORE COMPLETES 2ND OPHTHALMOLOGY CLINIC IN GRENADA FOR 2015

Posted By Tonya Duncan-Phillip (Duncan), Wednesday, October 14, 2015

For the second time this year, Grenadians benefited from the expertise of Dr. Philip Fiore, a Friend of SGU, who specializes in Ophthalmology.

 

Dr. Fiore, who has been facilitating similar clinics in Grenada over the past three (3) years was initially roped in by Alumnus Dr. Orazio Giliberti, SGUSOM '82, who leads the Alumni team conducting Ophthalmology missions on island.  

 

Dr. Fiore and a medical technician were recently in Grenada over the period October 5 - 9, 2015 during which time he reviewed 115 cases.  According to Brendon La Grenade, Director of Medical Specialties Programs here at SGU, he was also able to conduct 7 extra-cap cataract surgeries, out of a planned 16 procedures, using manual extraction as there was an equipment malfunction.

 

Dr. Fiore is expected to conduct another clinic in late November 2015.

 

Alumni Relations extends a hearty 'thank you' to Dr. Fiore and his team, and we look forward to his next visit!
