The cost effectiveness of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in the medium to long term was not only recognised but it was also the utilization of cutting edge technology and surgical techniques which a plethora of empirical studies indicate leads to greater patient recovery and satisfaction.

LIFESTYLE DISEASES

Barbados has witnessed increased numbers of persons suffering from lifestyle disease such as diabetes, to the extent that it is known as the amputation capital of the world.  Studies have indicated that Barbados spends approximately 5% of its gross domestic product on the treatment of diabetes and hypertension which are both directly linked to obesity.
Further, the World Health Organisation (WHO) recently confirmed that Dominica and Barbados has the 11th and 12th highest overweight countries in the world in terms of percentage of population.
In light of these facts, Surgical Solutions Inc. recognizes the need for alternative care for the reversal of the negative impact of these diseases in Barbados and the Caribbean on a whole.
