Assignment to an overseas MEDDAC offers many challenges to the general surgeon.
This paper describes the experience of a general surgeon during 2 years at the 121st Evacuation Hospital, Seoul, Republic of Korea.
The records of 591 patients in the author's surgical database are reviewed.
Operations on skin, soft tissue and breast (n=191), abdominal wall herniorrhaphies (n=106), and endoscopic procedures (n=80) are most common.
The breadth of operative experience is considerable.
This underscores the need for well-trained motivated surgeons at overseas MEDDACS.
