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.
Without your support we wouldn’t be able to carry out our missions.

Golden Life Hospital in Bamako, Mali from 24.02.2023 to 03.03.2023.
At the beginning of 2023, another mission of Interplast Switzerland took place in Bamako, Mali.
In order to raise awareness about breast cancer, Interplast started the project to establish a breast center in the region and provide patients with reconstructive breast surgery. But like any new project in such an area, progress is slow.
Therefore, the team also worked on the classic plastic reconstruction problems in the area, such as facial reconstruction after noma, burn wounds and congenital defects.

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.
