A Laparoscopic General Surgery Mission conducted a total of nine operations in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Leader for the Laparoscopic General Surgery Mission, Dr David Lanning told NBC Radio they conducted the surgeries at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.
Laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed through small incisions in the body, with the assistance of a video camera and several thin instruments.
Dr Lanning says they are also testing other programs through which they can stay in contact with patients throughout St. Vincent and the Grenadines even after the mission is over.
The surgeries were conducted during the month of November.
