Bringing hope to the under privileged citizens of Cartagena

slide3

This young girl suffered from secuela ostheomyelitis. In her case a dangerous bacteria secondary to a previous leg surgery consumed her tibia (the small bone in her leg)

At the same time that this infection was eradicating her tibia it caused the soft tissues of the foot to contract

slide6

FUMEDICA doctors measure and fit a custom external fixator also known as an ILIZAROV frame

It proves to be a very difficult endeavor due to the angle and frailty of the limb.

slide7

This young woman’s journey will be an arduous 5 plus year experience, However, FUMEDICA has given her hope for greater mobility in the future

slide8

This 6 year old boy presents with congenital Talipes EQUINOVARUS or Clubfoot. This deformity is commonly seen in the underprivileged area of Cartagena Colombia

slide9

Correction of this deformity requires the application of an external fixator that will set the foot into a normal, straight and functional position.

slide10

All patients begins with multiple Consultations in the foundations clinic.

This young boy’s Clubfoot has been complicated by previously botched surgery from a local doctor.

slide11

Tendon transfer will assist in straightening this child foot.

Preparation for installation of external fixator.

This realignment will allow the child’s to walk normally.

Surgery was a success!

slide12

This 4 y/o boy suffers from a congenital contractive and shortening of the femur.

He is unable to straighten or bear weight on his legs and has been immobile his entire life

slide13

The application of an external fixator after a delicate procedure to lengthen his femur will be the first in many surgeries in the attempt to make his legs functional.

slide14

This 6 y/o boy suffers from a congenital disorder called pseudoartrosis which is the formation of a false joint caused by the failure of the bones to fuse

slide15

FUMEDICA’S strategy for correcting this congenital deformity is to remove the improper fusion and the surrounding tissues and connect the bones using an orthofixator

slide16

This 8 y/o boy suffers from a condition called macrodactyle; or abnormally large toes. FUMEDICA will reduce the phalange and remove excess tissues.

slide17

FUMEDIC provided this young man with reconstructive surgery following a motorcycle accident. To ensure full functionality upon recovery. FUMEDICA’s physicians use the ILIZAROV frame to stabilize the affected bones after surgery.

slide18

This 32 year old widow also suffers from Clubfoot but her case is complicated by the shortening of her left lower leg.

Thanks to FUMEDICA this mother of two is able to wear normal shoes, walk without assistance, hold a job, and provide for her family.

slide19

This 17 y/o female suffers from Blount’s disease which is a condition of disturbed growth of the medical inner growth plate of the upper tibia, causing severe bowing of the leg at the knee.

If untreated, the medical portion of the growth plate at the upper tibia stops producing bone, causing asymmetrical growth at the knee (bowlegs)

FUMEDICA stopped this disease in it’s tracks providing this young girl with a fully functional future

slide20

FUMEDICA’S physicians encounter and treat a myriad of orthopedic cases. These cases range from congenital disorders to infections to trauma.

slide21

Doctor Jaime Valiente examines a 4 y/o boy that suffers from cerebral palsy.

Characteristic gait deficits are noticeable as he ages. He is currently unable to put his heels on the ground due to leg deformities. FUMEDICA plans to aggressively treat this child\'s malady in order to ensure functionality.

slide22

FUMEDICA strives to provide the best care and support to their underprivileged patients and their families by bringing them the newest and best ways to correct their orthopedic abnormalities.

Through love, support and kindness FUMEDICA provides Columbians of all ages with the orthopedic medical services that would otherwise be unobtainable to them.

slide23

The main contributors to FUMEDICA include Adriana Michele, Doctor Jaime Valiente, and Doctor Bryan Popovici DPM.
