She has held the position of General Paediatric Surgeon at the public hospital for the past 14 months.According to Dr Novick, the Baby Heart Foundation has been in operation for 20 years and has worked in 31 countries around the world.

Moreover the entity has a team of both staff and volunteers who travel to institutions around the world that are in search of improving all aspects of paediatric cardiac care.“So our teams come, we spend approximately two to three weeks everywhere that we go and we operate on anywhere from 15 to 30 children, depending on how long or what are capabilities of the local infrastructure,” Dr Novick said.Novick was yesterday accompanied by the Baby Heart Foundation’s Director of Biomedical/Clinical Engineering, David Wieduwilt, who has already prepared a preliminary list of equipment that must be in place before paediatric surgical operations commence here.
