Yesterday, the first of three clinics was held to help curb the population, in a mobile surgical unit
parked at the Fitchburg Fire Department.
Sanchez spearheaded the launch of the Mobile Surgical Unit
, which has since expanded its scope and adapted the concept of 'Hospital on Wheels.'
Sanchez, a noted surgeon, is the brains behind the innovative Mobile Surgical Unit
for which he gained the moniker as the 'Doctor on Wheels.' He has spearheaded medical-surgical missions in many underserved areas in the country, performing various types of surgeries for free for the last 15 years.
