Extramural surgeries

The public health system in Mexico has structural flaws that produce unequal treatment for those living in poverty, mainly for the indigenous population and for those living in rural areas of high social backwardness.

In response, Carlos Slim Foundation has launched the Extramural Surgeryprogram, which provides highly specialized medical care to the country's marginalized population to substantially improve their quality of life.

1,059,956 surgeries have been performed, among which the following stand out:

        • Pediatric: varicocele, testicular cord cysts, lymphagiomas and lipomas;
        • Hand and foot: osteomuscular deformities of the hand and foot, sequelae of traumatic and congenital hand and compression of peripheral nerves of the hand, including carpal tunnel; and
        • Reconstructive plastic surgeries: sequelae of burns and sequelae of cleft lip and palate, among others.
