MiST - Mobile International Surgical Teams

MiST was founded in 2005 by a group of Manchester Surgeons to enable Surgical Teams to reach natural disasters areas and to aid in the initial surgical management of casualties.

Each Surgical Team includes:
- Consultant Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeons
- Plastic Surgeons
- Anaesthetists
- Operating Room Personnel
- Wound Care Specialists and Physiotherapists.

MiST has developed into an organisation that wants to:
1. Enable RRT (Rapid Resonse Teams) to go to areas of natural and man-made disasters
2. Perform arthroplasty (Hip and knee replacements) in developing countries in patients that otherwise could not afford such procedures
3. Teach and train allied health care professionals and surgeons through distance learning Diplomas and Masters degrees.

MiST needs your support to reach people in greatest need of medical intervention across the globe. With your support the 1500+ members of MiST can continue to throw a life-line to those in distress.
