SAVING LIVES WITH DIAGNOSTICS, AND TECHNOLOGY

By Hospital Pablo Tobon Uribe | Olga's testimony

Olga is a professional woman, active, mother of Juan Martín, a 7 years boy. But in one night everything changed. She lost her health and almost her life… Thanks to the expertise of a gastroenterologist and the technology of the Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe, Olga reborned and has a new opportunity to live a happy and plenty live.

November 27 of 2018, a day like any other in Olga’s life, except that she went to sleep at night, and didn’t woke up the day after. She was in a coma. Lorena was taken to a hospital and diagnosed with a pancreatic insulin issue, caused for a mass on her pancreas. After coming back of the coma, doctors presented several options of treatment, each one with high repercussions in her quality of life All but one: Doctor Gabriel Mosquera gastroenterologist at the Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe presented her a different treatment choice: with an specialized endosonography usually used in diagnosis of cancer, Doctor would be able to retire de tumor of the pancreas without collateral effects. This was how, thanks to Doctor`s Mosquera experience and the technology of the Hospital Pablo Tobón Uribe, Olga received a second chance to live her life!!! 

This story had a happy end, thanks to people like you! • We need to get more equipment, that let us save more lifes!

Olga authorized us to share her experience in our Hospital.
