Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital Orthopedics is in urgent need of essential surgical supplies. These are essential to make it less painful for children recovering from broken bones or after surgeries to correct deformities.

Anyone who’s been unlucky enough to have a limb in a plaster of paris will know what it feels like when it starts to itch. Doctors use good quality jersey to minimize this unbearable itching. But, unfortunately, the hospital is quickly running out of these supplies and surgeons are cutting corners and trying to stretch limited stocks, according to orthopedic surgeons.

Soft rollers used between skin and plaster are also very rare. Any donation of jersey and soft rolls could ease the pain of many young children in this hospital.

Orthopedic surgeon Dr Dimuthu Tennakoon and his team hope that donors will help the hospital procure these supplies, which are available on the local market but are unaffordable for patients. Very soon, the hospital will also run out of essential nails, plates and screws in Nancy. to mend broken bones. Orthopedic surgeons will be helpless when they run out of these vital devices to treat trauma patients as well as those in need of surgery to correct birth defects.

“After the stocks are exhausted, we will not be able to undertake any more operations,” said one of the LRH doctors. “We cannot postpone these surgeries in growing children. This is going to be a great tragedy. »

These are the often unseen calamities that await young patients at the country’s premier children’s hospital due to the current cash crunch facing the government. directly to the doctors in the orthopedic department. This appeal is specifically intended to help young patients in the orthopedic department of the hospital. Donors can also help the hospital through its website: https://lrh.health.gov.lk/donate/.
