Doctors help young patients in Guatemala
In January, a team of medical professionals led by Dr. Stig Somme and Dr. Fred Deleyiannis traveled from Colorado to Guatemala City to provide free medical care. At the Moore Pediatric Surgery Center, the team performed more than 60 procedures on patients ranging in age from 3 months to 18 years.
Each year, Children's Hospital Colorado and Project C.U.R.E. collaborate to gather all the supplies needed for the surgeries. The medical team, which includes plastic surgeons, pediatric surgeons, nurses, and pediatric anesthesiologists, has focused specifically on microtia repair and general surgery such as hernia repair, circumcisions, and gall bladder surgeries.
