Dr. Lowell Lewis, surgeon on contract with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda

LewisPresented at the annual President’s Meeting of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh U.K. on March 21st 2014.

“Emergency Surgery in the 21st Century for developing countries and remote communities” by Dr L Lewis, Dr S Richards and Dr S Radhakrishnan, consultant surgeons at Mount St John’s Medical Centre  St John’s Antigua, was the paper shortly to be exhibited on the website of the College.

Dr Lowell Lewis, pictured with the poster paper, said that it was an honor to be selected to make a presentation at his first return visit to the College, since becoming a Fellow 32 years ago.

He said that it was also a privilege to demonstrate that not only is access to surgical services in Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, and St Kitts and Nevis, comparable with that in the United Kingdom and North America as a result of air ambulance medical evacuation services, but also that in some instances, advanced care is provided in Antigua  in a more affordable way, by combinations of old and new surgical techniques, as well as by  collaboration with the local private health institutions, Medical Surgical Associates,  Adelin Medical Centre and the Belmont Clinic.

It is his opinion that the most important achievement of this paper, was the creation of a useful desk top learning activity for staff at Mount St John Medical Centre on the ward computers, which provides a template for easy continuous audit of our work, to promote maintenance of the highest standards of care.
