Included were surgeons, an anesthesiologist, a gastroenterologist, and an ear, nose, and throat surgeon as well as certified registered nurse anesthetists, registered nurses for pre-, intra-, and postrecovery, a certified registered gastroenterology nurse, and helpers. The focus is on the people involved, starting as strangers, working together, crossing bridges, and helping others in a third world country.
