Dr. Lynn Osmundsen, MD, FACOG traveled to Ethiopia to provide give new hope to sixty women
Aethena Gynecology Associates, P.S. is proud to share that co-owner Lynn Osmundsen, MD, FACOG recently returned from a medical mission to Ethiopia where she provided life-changing surgery for sixty women.
Dr. Osmundsen says, “Giving back these women’s ability to function in society was one of the most rewarding experiences of my career.”
Dr. Osmundsen traveled with women’s health providers from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Providence Medical Center in collaboration with Gimbie Adventist Hospital, a rural hospital located in Western highland of Ethiopia.
The hospital serves Gimbie Town, a town of roughly 50,000 residents in the West Wollega Zone.
Rural Ethiopian women, most of whom are very young when they start having children, face alarmingly high, and preventable, maternal complication rates. Multiple vaginal deliveries, prolonged and often times obstructed labor coupled with a lifetime of heavy manual labor can create serious muscle and nerve trauma to the pelvic floor leading to uterine prolapse, the protrusion of the uterus and vagina outside the body. This prolapse leads to discomfort and voiding and defecating dysfunction causing social, physical and psychological trauma. Many women with this condition are divorced or abandoned by their husbands and partners, disowned by family, and ridiculed by friends This silent epidemic of prolapse has a devastating impact on physical and social interaction and severely limits daily activities.
The group provided needed surgical care for sixty of these women who could not otherwise afford treatment while educating local surgeons, nurses and anesthetists in pelvic reconstructive procedures to continue the services after the group returned home. These procedures restored the women’s anatomy back to a functional status and enabled them to move back into their community. All surgeries were completely funded by Global Soul International a non-profit based in Portland, Oregon.
