Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — It’s that time of year, again!  A team of doctors from the Shriners Hospital for Children in Honolulu will be on island from November 12-14, 2019 to conduct follow up visits and review new cases. 

Any child below 18 years of age that has orthopedic conditions (i.e. clubfoot, etc), burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care.  This is the second time this year that the Shriner doctors have visited the territory.  They have been visiting every year for several decades and provide an invaluable service to our community. 

If your child needs a follow up visit with the doctors, or has a condition that meets the above-noted areas please contact the Surgical clinic at LBJ to schedule an appointment.  All appointments will be handled at the surgical clinic.
