INTERNATIONAL PLASTIC SURGERY FOR DEVELOPING COUNTRIES

 

The INTERPLAST surgical teams are experienced plastic surgeons, anaesthetists and surgical nurses making their holidays available for operations completely free of charge in developing countries.

Medicine and surgical instruments brought by the doctors as well as the charges of transport and accommodation of the team are funded by donations.

 

WE LEND OUR AID TO THE POOREST IN THE WORLD

All over the world, people suffer from diseases leaving bad scars and disfigurement. Accidents involving burns or animal bites are also very common. Children in particular suffer from this and often have to struggle with it their whole lives.

In many crisis areas, people become victims of violent conflicts. Especially for children, these assaults are traumatizing and without any appropriate treatment, normal life is impossible.

Doctors from INTERPLAST go to crisis areas free of charge in their free time to operate and treat people in need. In this way, children can be helped to live a life of dignity that would otherwise be denied to them.

MISSION REPORTS

Burkina Faso, April 2022

Klinik Centre Medico-Chirurgical Sédogo from 07.04.2022 to 14.04.2022.

 

Interplast-Switzerland was again on a mission. It might have already become routine, one would think, since a large number of missions have already been organized by us in recent years. But nevertheless

it is always exciting, uncertain, emotional and unpredictable to plan, execute and follow up such a mission.

 

The focus in this mission was breast reconstruction in women with breast cancer. Learn more about the last mission and listen to the impressions of the team.

Burkina Faso, November/December 2021

Mission in the "Centre Medico-Chirurgical Sédago" clinic in Léo Burkina Faso from 25 November to 04 December 2021

 

 

A mission was planned in Persis, Ouahigouya. But there were COVID 19 cases in Persis and therefore the health department in the clinic had quarantined the operating area for 14 days. This would still have been a solvable problem, but unfortunately there were attacks again very close to Ouahigouya, and we were advised not to come for security reasons. So we looked for solutions to avoid having to cancel the mission and were able to move the mission to Léo a clinic in the south of Burkina Faso.
