Minor operations are regularly carried out in for example S Africa with local teams. The plastic surgeons also at their discretion carry out operations to cosmetically improve the persons face or make their limbs more effective and functional.
In 2012 MIAT set up the mother and baby project with Breast care as part of it. Teams led by Catherine Zahidi breast care nurse from sandwell hospital) and Mrs Shanaz Bhatti from Walsall, West Midland travelled to Pakistan and empowered women to self examine through dummy demonstrations – these mannikins were purchased and sent by MIAT. Professor Penny McManus from Hull group of hospitals has become the lead for breast surgery and regularly visits Gujarat to operate on breasts problems including cancers.
