The trip was funded in-part by Children’s Health and Rehabilitative Missions (CHARM), a non-profit organization established by Dr. Eric J. Stelnicki. The mission to Guyana, a small South American nation with only one plastic surgeon for its entire population, has an urgent need for pediatric reconstructive surgery and podiatric care.
Together, these medical teams provided in-country medical and nursing education. Through this, the team ultimately hopes to achieve long-term sustainability for providing reconstructive and surgical care on a continual basis in Guyana. The group ended up seeing more than 100 patients and performed around 35 surgeries.
