Surgical Outreach

The first mission was carried out in Gabon, a country located on the west coast of Central Africa. Los Angeles-based brain and spine surgeons Leonel and Gabriel Hunt traveled with a team of medical staff to the country of 1.5 million people to offer their services. This is especially relevant considering the fact there is only one neurosurgeon in the entirety of Gabon.

Global Medical Missions

The Hunt Foundation team performed 8 surgeries in 7 days on those who would have never otherwise received treatment for conditions such as brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, and other advanced medical conditions. And not only did they perform surgeries, but they also provided expert medical instruction and training to the doctors and nurses on the ground.

After the tremendously rewarding and successful trip, the doctors were compelled to continue their mission of increasing access to medical care and education.

In 2013, the doctors traveled to Ethiopia for another medical mission. While there, they partnered with Dr. Yigeremu Asfaw and his team at the Bethel Teaching Hospital, Bethel Medical College, and Bethel Orphanage Center.

The Hunt Foundation is actively pursuing the development of additional facilities at the Bethel Center and is an integral part of procuring medical equipment and educational materials that will be used to train future neurosurgeons in Ethiopia, of which there are currently only three.
