The Dr. Nirav and Neha Shah Family Medical Mission is a non-profit organization that brings advanced medical care to the Bonao region, a remote area in the central highlands of the Dominican Republic. We provide the same committed care to patients in the area as to our regular patients here at home. There is no cost to them. The Medical Mission has made a difference in the lives of the people of Bonao and will continue to do so in the future by strengthening and diversifying our presence.
a. My dream was to always give back to the less fortunate. I have been privileged to be able to take care of patients on a daily basis and to provide excellent medical care. But I wanted to do more. I had the opportunity in 2012 to create a medical mission in the Dominican Republic. The goal of the mission was to create awareness about scoliosis.
Scoliosis is abnormal curvature of the spine that can result in severe pain and disfigurement. Scoliosis is an epidemic in the Dominican Republic. These patients do not have access to quality medical care. They do not have access to braces or medications that can help prevent the scoliosis from occurring. These patients often live in a malnourished state.
The goal of this mission is to raise awareness and funds for non-surgical spine care. We raise money to provide physical therapy, braces and medications to these patients. Ultimately the dream is to grow this mission and expand into other areas of the country. This will help bring more sophisticated levels of medicine to these wonderful people.
