In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I visted many hospitals. We identified a hospital which predominately treats impoverished patients, where I found the urologists to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, but lacking the most necessary equipment for urological surgery. I donated a complete surgical system with providing video capabilities to the hospital. The doctors involved have communicated with me since that time that the equipment is fully operational and they continue to perform many procedures to relieve prostatic enlargement and bladder tumors with this equipment. Dr. Cohen and also toured multiple hospitals in Phnom Penh and in the surrounding districts. Dr. Cohen identified the needs of doctors in various hospitals requiring various equipment and instruction in his specialty, and we will be a developing a program in the future to donate the surgical equipment.

In Vientiane, Laos once again, we met with doctors of multiple hospitals and their staff where we found them to be extremely knowledgeable and competent, but once again, their surgical equipment was inadequate or non-functional for the treatment of urological and gastroenterological disease. I performed multiple surgeries with the chief of urology and had promised to furnish him with the appropriate equipment.
