Dr. Sameer Jejurikar’s Compassion Makes a Beloved Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Sameer Jejurikar’s Compassion Makes a Beloved Plastic Surgeon

Some people join the medical industry because of the prestige while others do it for the financial security it offers, but there are some who do it because they want to help people. Dr. Sameer Jejurikar is one of those people who feels passionate about lending a helping hand to those in need. He is the kind of plastic surgeon that people remember for his compassion and attention. Dr. Sam does not only help people attain their dreams but joins in their journey because he wants to understand each patient.

 

The idea of getting to know a patient is part of what makes Dr. Sam’s approach so well-received by his patients and admired by his colleagues. He is a fully board-certified plastic surgeon, but he is like a friend to those who have been lucky enough to work with him. At the moment, he is a member of one of the most sought after plastic surgery centers in Texas called the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. Part of the reason this cosmetic center wanted to work with him dealt with his expertise in plastic surgery and experience, which are definite pluses. Still, it seems it is Dr. Jejurikar’s compassion that has really given him the respect he enjoys from people.

 

It should be noted that Dr. Sam’s compassion goes beyond the walls of this plastic surgery center. The cosmetic surgeon has an active community life where he participates in events around his community, not to mention his annual medical missions. There are a number of impoverished kids in Bangladesh who are in need of help. These children have no one to bring them joy and health, which is the reason Dr. Sam volunteers with Smile Bangladesh every year to help these children. This non-profit organization gathers a number of medical professionals and takes them to help these children who greatly need it.

Fagali’i Airport

Fagali’i Airport is located in the South Pacific region of Fagali’i, Samoa. It’s runway is 2,198 feet and made of asphalt. It is owned and operated by the Polynesian Airlines and Samoa Airport Authority. Fagali’i Airport is unique because its airstrip used to be grass only and it has a shorter runway compared to other airports in the region. It is a five minute drive from downtown Apia and because of it’s proximity it is used mainly for internal flights to Pago Paga (pronounced “Pah-Ngo Pah-Ngo”) and international flights sometimes as well.

Fagali’i Airport was met with a lot of controversy for safety reasons from the community and the government. Shortly after this backlash, it decided to undergo renovations. Fagali’i’s airstrip was paved and the airport re-opened July 6th, 2002. According to dohop.com Polynesian Local General Manager, Brent Schwenke helped to facilitate the grand opening which was attended by Polynesian Officials and the Samoan Government. Fagali’i Airport had was different from other airports in the region because, at the time, Polynesian Airlines were the only ones able to service the airport. The privately-owned “South Pacific Express” was in direct competition with Polynesian Airlines and utilized Faleolo Airport. Though smaller, Fagali’i was still able to maintain an advantage.
