U.S. plastic surgeon pays it forward in other countries

01/29/2013 | Wall Street Journal, The

Plastic surgeon Kaveh Alizadeh helped create Mission: Restore in 2010 to provide reconstructive surgery in areas affected by war and natural disasters and to prepare local doctors to provide more services. Team members will soon travel to El Salvador, where they will take care of patients and develop relationships with doctors. Members will maintain those relationships and support local doctors through telemedicine software, and the doctors will later be brought to the U.S. for additional training. "We're not just a group doing surgery," Alizadeh said. "We want to establish a long-term commitment with doctors in the communities and mimic the training program we have in the U.S. so these doctors will become self-reliant."
