Dr. Ruhlman and his family are leaving for Kenya this Christmas Eve. Dr. Ruhlman served at Tenwick Hospital in Bomet, Kenya last year and he is doing it again. According to Dr. Ruhlman, “The country was quite beautiful and the people are very generous and accommodating. Just about a 4-hour drive out of Nairobi, Tenwick Hospital is a rural 300- bed hospital serving a very large under served area. The hospital employs over 500 local kenyan workers and has significant international support. World Medical Mission supports the hospital with logistics and helping volunteers travel to Tenwick and that is how I got involved to help with their Orthopedic Surgical load.”
Last year, Dr. Ruhlman performed 3-5 surgeries per day working with the resident and attending surgeons and helped teach them techniques that he uses in his practice.
