US Book Release: Dr. Ellegala Teaches Brain Surgery in Tanzanian Village

Award-winning author Tony Bartelme wrote A Surgeon in the Village, which details the story of our very own Dr. Ellegala, who travels to Tanzania and teaches neurosurgery in a country scarce of neurosurgeons.

Amazon summarizes this book as “A Surgeon in the Village is the incredible and riveting account of one man’s push to “train-forward”—to change our approach to aid and medical training before more lives are needlessly lost. His story is a testament to the transformational power of teaching and the ever-present potential for change. As many as seventeen million people die every year because of a shortage of surgeons, more than die from AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Dilan Ellegala and other visionaries are boldly proposing ways of saving lives.”
