Repairing Cleft Lip

This week we were blessed to have several doctors from Mayo Clinic visit us in Choluteca, Honduras to perform cleft lip and palate surgeries. This is a photo of the Mayo Clinic team plus Teresa Searcy, Jose Benavides and Cobra Cornilio.

Dr. John Burgoyne also joined us for Ear Reconstructions.

These three are part of the Dr. John fan club... Two of them have already had several surgeries and return to get the final "tweeks". Ear reconstruction is hardly ever done in Honduras so they are thrilled to have the chance to have this surgery.
