Chronicles our evolution as pioneers in delivering comprehensive reconstructive surgery in underserved regions of the world.
Where We Work

ReSurge International (formerly Interplast) was the first organization to provide reconstructive surgery to children in the developing world. We work in many of the most impoverished countries on earth, serving the bottom billion of the world’s poor who have limited or no access to health care.

Today, in 13 countries, ReSurge treats children and adults with clefts, disabling burns, hand traumas and other disfigurements and injuries.

ReSurge International’s largest year-round program in Africa is in Zambia, where we partner with the country’s only plastic surgeon. We send volunteer medical trips to Mali, while empowering Dr. Oumar Coulibaly to become that country's first plastic surgeon. ReSurge also provides surgeries year-round in Ghana and burn education in Malawi. > more
Three of our largest programs are in Asia: Nepal and Bangladesh, where we have had year-round Surgical Outreach Programs for more than a decade; and Vietnam, our largest volunteer medical trip program. > more
ReSurge International’s roots are in Latin America; our first volunteer medical trips were to Mexico. We have worked in Ecuador for more than three decades. In Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua and Peru, we have well-established sustainable, year-round programs to treat the poor in those countries. > more
ReSurge sends volunteer medical teams to empower developing world surgeons by teaching and performing more than 600 life-transforming surgeries with them each year, helping to reduce the backlog of cases in those countries and to provide hands-on training. > more
