first_img Honduran surgeons and their U.S. counterparts have worked side by side for years bringing medical assistance to the people of Comayagua, Honduras. In October 2011, Joint Task Force-Bravo Medical Element and Honduran surgeons completed highly needed surgeries in local hospitals. The six-person Joint Mobile Surgical Team worked together three times a week, averaging between two to five surgeries a day. “We’ve being doing this for 18 years and I’ve been on hundreds of these trips,” said Dr. Wilmer Amador, Joint Task Force-Bravo medical liaison officer. “It’s a win-win for everybody.” The JTF-Bravo Medical Element also supports military missions and humanitarian assistance and provides lifesaving surgical capability at Soto Cano Air Base.
