SIGN Spine Program

Right now, there are no fellowship-trained spine surgeons in Ethiopia. But with rising traffic accidents and other trauma, thousands of patients need specialized care to recover from spinal injuries.

You can help start the first spine surgery training center at St. Paul Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We are partnering with Dr. Supriya Singh, Dr. Parham Rasoulinejad, and Team Broken Earth to train Dr. Birhanu and his team, donate the instruments and implants they need to care for spine injuries, and empower them to educate other surgeons in East Africa.

We need your help to raise $500,000. These funds will be used to supply St. Paul Hospital with enough implants to start and sustain the spine fellowship for 1 year.
