First Desert Flower Medical Center opens in Berlin

22 Aug

On September 11th 2013 the first Desert Flower Medical Center will be opened in Berlin in cooperation with the hospital Waldfriede. The DFM-Center will be the first medical center worldwide, offering holistic treatment and medical care for FGM victims. The Desert Flower Medical Center will be managed by Dr. med Roland Scherer, who was recently once again nominated as one of Germany’s Top 100 doctors. Reconstructive surgery as well as gynaecological and psychological treatment will be offered for women affected by FGM.  The French surgeon Dr. med Pierre Foldes will advise the Desert Flower Medical Center; Dr. med Foldes already operated 5000 women successfully in France. The Desert Flower Medical Center in Berlin is a pilot project of the Desert Flower Foundation. Desert Flower Medical Centres are planned in Europe, Africa, Asia and the US in 2014.
