DAGUPAN CITY – The city of Dagupan, in partnership with the University of Santo Tomas Medical Mission Incorporated, conducted a two-day surgical mission for minor operation and circumcision anew on April 21 and 22 at West Central 1 Elementary School.
After the two-day medical mission, 700 children out of 1500 who registered were circumcised while 200 out of 500 patients underwent minor operations on masses or ”Nikolai”, cysts, lipoma, warts, moles and skin tags.
