The team of Humanitäre Hilfe e.V. at work: mixed team, on the far left Dr. Soeren Gatz, endoscopic intervention on the bile ducts in case of biliary obstruction. You can see the joy of the successful intervention.
For many years SIP has been supporting the association Humanitäre Hilfe e.V., led by Landsberg cardiologist Dr. Soeren Gatz. Here, a number of retired doctors are not improving their handicap on the golf course but the health care system in Cameroon and Tanzania. Without organizational overhead, with a lot of heart and commitment, the help arrives on site where it is most urgently needed. The donation will be used to purchase a transesophageal ultrasound probe for the benefit of the St. Benedict Monastery Hospital in Ndanda, southern Tanzania. With this method, doctors examine the various heart chambers and vessels as well as heart valves from the esophagus: there are only a few millimeters between the esophagus and the heart, so that razor-sharp images of the moving heart and its structures are created, which greatly improves diagnostics. Dr. Gatz will personally hand over the device on February 14, 2023 and offer a special course Transesophageal Echocardiography for local doctors to have this modern and now indispensable technique also available in southern Tanzania.
