Janakpur,  Eastern Nepal.
Serious burns to arm and body at the age of 2 years.
This is a huge case. Dr.Kiran K. Nakarmi, MD, Director, Interplast Surgical Outreach Program Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Kathmandu Model Hospital Kathmandu has offered to operate this patient. Release the axilla (arm) in the first stage. It requires lots of skin graft from the thigh, and do the elbow in second stage after three months, but the patient will need to stay in Kathmandu for almost a month. We need a sponsor for the stay of this patient in hospital.
Update 8 July: This boy underwent surgery today. It took 3 full hours but his arm was completely separated from the side of the body. He will need couple more surgeries to straighten his elbow and ? Wrist. Not sure if we can straighten his wrist because the joint is out of place.
