The Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital in Sunyani is undertaking a week-long free surgery for persons suffering from hernia.

Professor Stephen Tabiri of the University of Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale, who is leading a team of experts from Ghana and Holland for the exercise, said the programme is aimed at reducing the prevalence rate of the illness in the region.

He said the team would operate on 15 patients a day and urged people with hernia-related cases to report at the hospital for treatment.

Prof. Tabiri said the Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital has the required facilities that can undertake successful surgeries.

Dr Jacob Abebrese, Medical Superintendent of the Hospital, said his outfit is concerned about the health of the people, hence the initiative.

He expressed gratitude to the team of experts, individuals and corporate bodies for supporting the worthy course.

Dr Abebrese was particularly grateful to Mr Ransford Antwi, the Managing Director of Sun City Radio, for the publicity given to the exercise.
