You are here: Dr Sylvain

Name: Dr. Sylvain - Surgeon and head of HoverAid's Madagascar Medical Safari (MMS)

What does Dr. Sylvain do? Dr. Sylvain leads the MMS, and is responsible for finding volunteer doctors to join him in the rural MMS expeditions. Sylvain leads the surgery in the field, leads morning prayer when on base and always works with a smile on his face!

Passing on the Pie? Sylvain’s surgery has saved, helped and healed many thousands of our patients! He also does ultrasounds on those who are pregnant, have stomach ulcers and cysts. He works alongside the GPs, anaesthetist and specialists we have in the team to ensure the best possible medical attention is given.

When Sylvain removed a Cyst bigger than a football from a lady, he kept it especially to show her after she had recovered from the anaesthetic! That's Malagasy bedside manner for you!

Sylvain directly helps those who need medical intervention the most, those who are living along the Mangoky, and our other project areas.
