Recovery Care

ReSurge provides free comprehensive care following surgery that includes speech, hand and physical therapy through selected Surgical Outreach Programs, in cooperation with our international medical partners. This is a vital part of integrated medical care. ReSurge is increasingly working to provide an integrated continuum of care for cleft, burn and hand patients.

Surgery Is Just the Beginning

It’s an undisputed fact that reconstructive surgery transforms lives…in truly indescribable ways. But the story often doesn’t end there.

For example, repairing a cleft lip or cleft palate helps improve appearance and reduce stigma–leading to a more promising tomorrow. However, often in developing countries–where access to care is limited, especially for the impoverished–such surgery isn’t performed in infancy. That means the older child will probably need to relearn how to eat and speak as he or she adjusts to the new architecture of his or her mouth.

All these patients deserve an opportunity to get the post-op care they need to truly renew and restore their lives. For cleft patients, this includes speech therapy and orthodontics, allowing children to receive the full benefit of their cleft repairs.

For patients with burn and hand injuries, therapy and repeated surgeries can be necessary to regain as much functionality as possible.
