Dr. Brender's American Surgical Clinic

Started in April 2018 by Dr. Elliott Brender, we now have the Dr. Brender's American Surgical Clinic at the Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital.
  It's purpose is to improve surgical care in Cambodia by training both American & Cambodian surgeons in the latest surgical techniques.  We see patients every Wednesday afternoon from 2 to 4 pm.  We do not charge for our services.  We provide general surgical care.  A partial list of what we do:

Hernias, abdominal problems, cancer, masses, breast masses, neck masses, abdominal pain, appendicitis, gallstones, stomach & liver problems, colon & rectal issues, hemorrhoids, fissures, fistula, abscesses. 

An American Junior Surgeon runs the clinic with supervision from the rotating Senior Surgeon and our full time senior surgeon, Dr. Steven Swartz.  Surgeons from University of California Irvine, University of California Los Angeles, University of Southern California, & Cedar Sinai Hospital will be rotating thru on a monthly basis.  The rotating senior surgeon may cover a minimum of 2 weeks to longer as desired.  The ultimate goal is to establish a Cambodian surgical residency program that will fully train & certify Cambodian surgeons.

We also have a memorandum of understanding with Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope (SHCH).  We help with surgical clinic and with surgical cases on an as needed basis.
