A summary of this second NSVI vasectomy mission to Haiti was compiled by NSVI Development Director Dr. Doug Stein before he was comfortable with the use of WordPress, the software used to publish this NSVI website. So rather than repeat it all here, we ask that you click the link below, which will open another window.


NSVI President Dr. Ramon Suarez performs a vasectomy as Dr. Fritz Lolagne puts the patient at ease in Creole.

Dr. Stein operating until well after dark, while Dr. Lolagne learns that the patient has eight children and his assistant Lisette stands ready to assist with post-op instructions. In Plaisance there is no public electricity and no running water, but we had plenty of batteries for headlights, sterilizing solution, and bottled water.
