Solomon Island's mission

A first and historic trip to the Soloman Islands in November of 2023 saw the first Neuro group to perform brain surgery there. The Aelan Neurosurgical team formed at the urgent request from the Ministry of Health Services in the Soloman Islands. 


Their collective mission was to provide specialised medical care to long awaiting patients and education to the local medical community. Three consecutive days of surgical interventions marked a resounding success. 


This mission stands as a testament to the incredible outcomes that unfold when dedicated individuals pool their expertise for the greater good. Beyond the surgical achievements, the team engaged in a collaborative knowledge exchange, sharing their insights with the local community to support them in addressing future medical challenges.


Amongst the Aelan team were Macquarie Neurosurgery’s Professor Antonio Di Ieva, Dr Matthew Tait, Dr Kevin Agyemang and Dr Eric Suero Molina. Macquarie Neurosurgery contributed $10,000 to the cause and is very proud to have been involved in this mission.
