I just came back from Ethiopia mission trip.  I went to Arce Negele General Hospital and Medical College, in Ethiopia.  It is located in a small town in Southern Ethiopia, about 200 km south of Addis Ababa.  My friend, Dr Hinika, is from the area, and he built the hospital and medical college with the help of Ethiopia HealthAid (EHA).  During the last trip in November 2017, I worked with the local surgeons and taught basic plastic surgery procedures.   This time, I wanted to meet with the medical students. There are about 25 medical students, all first year, (the school opened it door las...

Smoking prior to surgery and during recovery can cause serious effects on wound healing.  This is because smoking effects the small vessels in the body, resulting in scarring of the small arteries and veins. During the healing process, more blood needs to flow to areas of surgery.  This increased blood flow provides more oxygen and nutrients to healing areas so that wounds will heal faster and more smoothly. Because smoking can lead to scarring of small blood vessels, smoking causes a limitation of the blood flow. When blood flow is decreased to healing areas, this results in slower he...

Our Man in Tokyo

I went to see the screening of a short documentary film “Our man in Tokyo (Ballad of Shin Miyata)" at Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, yesterday.  Shin Miyata is a chicano music fan/record label producer/music promotor.  He became obsessed with the Chicano music in East Los Angeles years ago, and determined to spread the music in Japan.  He has brought many musicians from East LA to Japan performing at a numerous venues.  It’s an interesting take on a person with remarkable passion to the music of East LA.  I realized that Chicano culture and Japanese Am...
