Morrison Vein Institute, “grateful hearts giving back”

Under the direction of Amigos de Salud Co-founders Nick Morrison, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.C.Ph. and his wife Terri Morrison, R.N., a team of volunteer physicians, nurses, other clinicians and support staff traveled to Matagalpa-Nicaragu this year from August 30th through September 5, 2014.

Non-profit Amigos de Salud (which loosely translated means Friends of Health) is dedicated to providing medical and surgical care and supplies to those with limited resources in South America.

“This is grass-roots medical care,” explains Dr. Morrison, co-founder of the Morrison Vein Institute in Scottsdale and the Morrison Training Institute. “It is a remarkable experience for all concerned and embodies a unique one-on-one impact that is difficult to describe,” continues Dr. Morrison. “As medical professionals, we can give back in time and talent to individuals who desperately need our care.”

This was the Morrison’s 24th trip to Ecuador, Peru, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The humanitarian effort comprised a multi-specialty medical team of physicians specializing in Phlebology, venous disease and vein disorders

CompuDiagnostics, an ultrasound imaging company, also donated time and equipment for this year’s trip and conducted a wide range of ultrasound diagnoses and ultrasound-guided treatments.

According to Terri Morrison, all volunteers not only donate their time and skill, they also pay for their own airfare, trip expenses and some equipment. Care is provided at the Fara Clinic in Nicaragua. Sutures, operating room equipment, medical machines, gloves, gowns, drapes, antibiotics, dressings, IVs, etc. are all purchased, donated and corporate-sponsored under the auspices of Amigos de Salud. At the end of the trip, any unused supplies are donated to local medical facilities.
