I am out of the office for two weeks working as a pediatrician for the Resurge International trip to Phan Rang, Vietnam. The team consists of six doctors, four nurses, and two coordinators/translators who will spend the next two weeks treating patients. The other pediatrician, Dr. David Marcus, practices in Florida.
Clinic day is the first day of each surgical trip. We saw 101 patients, many of whom have been scheduled to have cleft lips and palates repaired, along with the repair of fingers, toes and burn scars.
Resurge International, founded in 1969, treats and trains in a number of countries. Read more about the group here.
