In April of 2016, our department provided funding for three of our doctors to go to Colombia with the organization Healing the Children. Drs. Renard Sessions, Everett Jones, and Greg Goldenhurst were among the doctors on the team of Healing the Children 2016 Neiva Mission.
The team was able to perform 141 surgeries. Many of these were complex surgeries such as primary ears, Le Forte’s, and procedures to correct hip dysplasia. These are long procedures, some even surpassing ten hours, and require great surgical skill.
Healing the Children provides critical medical care to children all around the world. They envision a world where every child has access to medical care, regardless of ability to pay, insurance status, or physical location. With 16 chapters nationwide and many international partners, they are committed to meeting the healthcare needs of children worldwide.
