January 20 Jornada to Tijuana, Mexico

On January 20, 2018 we had another productive surgical and medical outreach in partnership with healthcare professionals from Tijuana and Mexico City at CER Hospital, Tijuana. Together we completed a highly complex free fibula flap procedure to correct partial facial paralysis for a 10 YO girl, and a primary palate repair. We provided medical and speech therapy assessments for 11 patients. In addition, we led a telemedicine broadcast featuring the surgical patients and procedures to UCSD, University of Massachusetts and sites in Mexico.
