ANOTHER child who left the country to receive orthopedic treatment at the Shriners Hospital in Hawaii has returned home.
Hospital representative Rob Leacock said the surgery performed on six-year-old Ratu Tila Toalevu had positive results.
"On August 9 last year, Ratu Tila and his father Ratu Rakuita Tawake flew to Shriners Hospital for Children in Hawaii so that Ratu Tila could have surgery to repair his right hip," he said.
"They returned home in March 2014 after a seven-month stay. Ratu Tila had surgery and physiotherapy as well. He also received dental treatment at the hospital."
Meanwhile, Mr Leacock said another child, 13-year-old Elijah Cabeiwasa, left for the hospital in Hawaii last month for surgery to his foot.
"This is so that Elijah could have surgery to repair a clubfoot."
