Watch the video of the 2018 Developing Faces Surgical Mission to Guatemala. Led by Dr. Paul Rosenberg, the team performed 29 life changing surgeries on tiny babies and children.
We are currently preparing to go on another mission in March 2020. Dr. Catherine Mazzola, a pediatric neurosurgeon, will be leading the mission and providing surgical care for neurosurgery patients. This will give children with craniosynostisis, spina bifida, frontal encephaloceles and hydrocephalus the chance of leading normal lives. (Neurosurgery is the medical specialty involved with the brain, spinal cord nerves and cerobrobascular system)
In addition, Dr. Rosenberg will be performing operations on cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. .
We are all excited to go on another mission. The team is working hard on getting the papers in order for the medications, government consent and the hospital in Guatemala’s approval. There’s a lot of work that goes into planning a mission, but it’s always worth it when we see the faces of the patient’s parents after a successful surgery.
