Dozens get free surgeries at Kaiser in San Francisco
Several dozen uninsured people were given free surgical care, from colonoscopies to hernia repairs to tonsillectomies, at Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. Dubbed "Super Surgery Session," the medical services were donated by about 84 Kaiser doctors, nurses and hospital technicians. The high-volume surgery was orchestrated by Operation Access, a nonprofit organization launched 16 years ago to mobilize San Francisco-area hospitals, community clinics, and medical volunteers to donate help to low-income people who need surgery but lack health insurance.
