#InstitutoMexicanoDelSeguroSocial.- From November 12 to 14, the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) carried out the eleventh National Day of Recovery of Ordinary Medical Services, where successful actions were achieved, such as the performance of 3,251 surgeries, 20,812 Specialty Consultations and 56,747 Family Medicine Consultations.
With the participation of 35 Decentralized Administrative Operating Agencies (OAAD) and 25 High Specialty Medical Units (UMAE), priority was given to outpatient and surgical care at the second and third levels of care, as well as Integrated Preventive Actions and Family Medicine Consultations at the first level.
Through the IMSS strategy «120 Days of Health Services Recovery», we joined forces nationwide to perform a total of 21,678 Arterial Hypertension Screenings and 21,195 Diabetes Mellitus Screenings, 5,275 Mastographies, 8,15 Clinical Breast Examinations and 3,667 Cervical-Uterine Cancer Screenings.
We also carried out 3,486 complete vaccination schedules, 1,387 social work interventions, 985 stomatology consultations, 490 nutrition consultations, 95 vasectomies, 30 Hepatitis C screenings and 56 mental health consultations.
In addition, 30 transplants were performed, 16 kidney, 11 cornea and 3 bone marrow transplants, which are added to the total institutional productivity of 1,429 procedures to date on beneficiaries who required this type of surgery due to some organic or tissue insufficiency.
The work of the Hospital Donation Coordinators was fundamental in this work, who achieved a multi-organ donation at the Hospital General de Zona (HGZ) No. 2 in Saltillo, Coahuila, so that the kidneys could be transplanted to two patients at the UMAE Hospital de Especialidades No. 25 in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.
