In the summer of 2016, Dr. Rahman traveled to Colombia to help children with spine conditions such as scoliosis. While there, he performed surgeries and follow-up visits to help monitor recovery. Pedicle screw technology, commonly used in the US, helped treat complex spinal deformities.
This trip was on behalf of Global Spine Outreach, a non-profit group that transforms the lives of children with severe spinal deformities around the world. This organization’s Mission is: Global Spine Outreach (GSO) transforms the lives of children with severe spinal deformities worldwide by performing state-of-the-art surgeries free of charge. We collaborate with local medical communities to build self-sustaining spine surgery centers of excellence. We enable surgeons to continually refine and sharpen their spine surgery skills through training and education provided by leading spine surgeons.
