Mission Possible: Operation New O.R.

We are all pre-op.

Did you know the average Canadian has three surgeries in their lifetime?

If you think about it, it’s not a matter of if you or someone you love will need surgery, it’s when.

RUH’s world class surgical teams do the most complex and specialized types of surgeries involving the heart, brain, spine and cancers, to name a few, each year in Saskatchewan.

Many of these complex surgeries require a multidisciplinary team often consisting of between 8 to 12 highly skilled professionals who require 4 to 8 hours or longer to complete lifesaving procedures.

Modern medicine demands better. You and these world-class professionals deserve better.

Dallas Carpenter entered the O.R. suite for an intense 10 hour surgery…

So many thoughts as I patiently waited and readied myself for a never-imagined life experience – an intense 8 to 10 hour surgery to remove a cancer so rare that there are only 1,100 cases recorded in the world.

I was diagnosed having esthesioneuroblastoma in November, 2017. The cancer had formed in the tissues of the upper part of my nasal cavity near the bone that separates the nasal cavity from the brain.

Operating in this delicate area requires the skills of highly-trained ear, nose, and throat and neuro surgeons, and many other health professionals.

Fortunately, because of donors like you, Royal University Hospital’s surgical teams have the expertise. Your gift will make their best even better and put in their hands exactly what they need to save and improve more lives here in Saskatchewan at RUH for years to come.

It could be your life on the table.

We want the people of Saskatchewan to have the world’s best surgical care right here at home. We have the expertise. What we need is state-of-the-art equipment – and the donors like YOU to make it possible!

Saskatchewan will come together to build a world class centre of surgical excellence.
