I’m performing a complicated open ..., 1 May 2014 [cached]
I’m performing a complicated open kidney surgery assisted by Dr. Jeff McKenney, a general surgeon and the President of the Cornerstone Foundation. Jeff began this project about 20 years ago. We were able to perform very complex operations in this modern operating room. Our “bloodbank†consisted of the entire staff of the hospital. Blood, if needed, was obtained fresh from walking donors. We did not need blood fortunately.
Dr. Jeff McKenney is assisting me with and open ureterolithotomy. This operation is rarely performed anymore in the USA, but it is lifesaving in areas with limited resources. The patient recovered uneventfully.

Editor's note: Dr. Richard Schmidt, a retired Biloxi pediatrician, and his wife and young daughter, recently helped Dr. Jeff McKenney and his family at the Hospital Loma de Luz in Honduras.
The architects of this "field of dreams" are Dr. Jefferson McKenney and his wife, Rosanne, a nurse/schoolteacher.
When God handed out talents, they must have been at the head of the line.They operate; they teach; they sing and play musical instruments at the twice-weekly praise and worship service.They design and build houses, treat almost any kind of patient in the clinic and take their turn as leaders of Bible study sessions.Dr. McKenney is the president of the Cornerstone Foundation of the United States and also of the Honduras Cornerstone Foundation, and he also helps his wife in her bilingual school.

"This is where I felt I could best be used by the Lord," Dr. Jefferson McKenney says when asked, "Why Honduras?"
Four years ago Jeff McKenney left his practice as a general surgeon and headed to Honduras to open a medical clinic and chapel near the village of Balfate.He is now joined by other missionaries who administer to the medical and spiritual needs of patients in a country where the per capita income is $660 a year.
More staff and more money are needed as the new 60-bed hospital readies for a January opening that will offer more surgeries, patient visits and emergencies than his outpatient clinic can handle.With those needs in mind, a handful of South Mississippians calling themselves the Hospital Loma de Luz Benefit Committee are holding a Nov. 19 fund-raising.
McKenney created Cornerstone Foundation in 1992, because he knew his life's calling is medical missions.
The missionary families who live there home-school their children, although Mrs. McKenney has started a school for Hondurans, who seldom go beyond third grade.
"Jeff preaches, builds, does surgery on Tuesdays and Thursday and clinics on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays, and he is on call 24 hours.He is amazing.He sings and plays the guitar and the flute.He was on the backhoe when we got there."
McKenney, 48, was reared in a military family that traveled a lot in his younger years.He was 12 when his father retired and moved to a Kentucky farm.That's when he says he became a Christian and knew he was destined for medical mission work.
McKenney attended medical school on a Navy scholarship and married Rosanne, a nurse and school teacher who is the daughter of missionaries in Italy.They did mission work together whenever they could.
After the military, McKenney went into a surgical partnership in Biloxi.
"On a trip to Belize some years ago, Jeff was talking to a missionary about areas in need and the man pointed to a place on the map in Honduras," said McKenney's sister, Sally Mahoney, who lives in Kentucky and handles Cornerstone's publicity.
"Jeff had always enjoyed Latin American people and he spent a number of years visiting different countries in Central America.He was trying to get a feel for the need for a hospital in a place that didn't have existing health care.He remembered what the missionary had told him years earlier and went to Honduras."
McKenney found the exact spot the missionary had pointed to, and surprisingly the land was for sale.
Dr. Jeff McKenney and his wife Rosanne brought their children, Gabe, Hanna and Nate, to Honduras when they moved there to open Hospital Loma de Luz.For 10 years McKenney had practiced general surgery in Biloxi.
What: Benefit and silent auction for Hospital Loma de Luz, a Christian mission hospital started in Honduras by Biloxi physician Jeff McKenney.
