Astrid Quirarte, International Surgery to Help Children
Astrid Quirarte

For my physical product I traveled to Guatemala with the organization Mending Kids International to scrub in and observe pediatric otolaryngological surgeries, surgeries that focus on the ears, nose, and throat. As shown in my images, I had the opportunity to scrub in as the surgical technician for Tonsillectomies and Adenoidectomies, procedures that involve the removal of the tonsils and adenoids. When scrubbed in, the lead surgeon took her time to teach me the anatomical and physiological understanding of the procedure. I scrubbed in and observed ninety-four surgeries in a matter of five days.
