50,000 Brazilians in Line for Orthopedic Surgery

Tuesday, September 19, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s Minister of Health, Saraiva Felipe, inaugurated the Week of Concentrated Effort in Trauma Surgery for the Elderly.

In his speech, Felipe informed that around 50,000 people in Brazil are on hospital waiting lines around the country to undergo some form of orthopedic surgery.


He said that the Ministry has encouraged intensive mutual efforts such as this one in Rio, during which it is expected that, until Friday, September 23, in the National Trauma-Orthopedic Institute alone, 150 surgeries will be performed at no cost, to begin to diminish the waiting lines for important operations, such as hip surgery and prosthesis replacement.


The minister also announced that concentrated group efforts will be encouraged for prostate surgery, an area in which there exists great demand in the country.
