What’s the goal in the long run?
ORC has treated more than 3,000 patients and performed more than 2,000 surgeries. We have trained plastic surgery residents, pediatric residents and anesthesia
residents/fellows in China, India, Philippines, Mexico, Middle East, Lebanon and Cambodia. Quite often on missions, we come across patients who do not meet
our mandate (not cleft lip/palate nor post burn contractures); however, our policy is to do our best to welcome patients who reach out to us and work with
our host hospitals to review treatment options where possible. In recent years, our focus has been on surgical education exchanges. ORC believes meaningful
dialogue and collaboration can further impact lasting change after we leave a country. Our hope is to continue our programs in the developing world and transform lives.
