International Medical Partners
ReSurge identifies promising reconstructive plastic surgeons in the countries we serve through our volunteer surgical mission trips. In many cases, when we leave, we partner with these local medical professionals to develop ongoing year-round programs that meet the needs of their local communities.
In some countries, our partners work in local hospitals to provide reconstructive plastic surgical services to the poor, and conduct periodic outreach trips to rural areas. In other locations, our partners have established large programs that train other medical professionals, conduct outreach in poor rural and urban areas to recruit patients in need of free surgical care, deliver that care, and subsequently provide follow up therapies to ensure the success of the procedures.
In all cases, ReSurge provides financial support, training and ongoing mentorship, and access to a global network of clinical experts, with a goal of building surgical capacity. ReSurge also provides ongoing oversight of the quality and safety of our local programs.
