Dr. Ra’Kerry Rahman gladly gives his time and surgical skills to:
Global Spine Outreach (GSO), a 501(c)(3), provides spinal surgeries to underprivileged children around the world. We partner and work alongside with local physicians to provide treatment to patients who otherwise would not receive care. Together, we correct spinal deformities, remove pain, and often prevent paralysis and extend life. Due to the complex nature of these surgeries, we also are dedicated to collaborating with local physicians and staff to provide training and honoring sustainable continuing care.
