Delia was a plastic surgeon in Haiti following the earthquake. This is her story.

Delia is a plastic surgeon.  She carried out a lot of corrective and reconstructive surgery in Haiti after the earthquake. She also performed a lot of skin grafts. “You don’t need a lot of equipment to do plastic surgery; the tools are quite simple and don’t cost much. It’s very travel-friendly.”

Burn/Plastic/Hand surgeons needed

Burn and plastic surgery of the hand are done in Haiti, Jordan and the Palestinian Territories. Médecins Sans Frontières began treating burn victims in 2007 in collaboration with a team of specialists from the Edouard Herriot burnt center in Lyon. The burns represent 30% of our surgical activity. Improving our multidisciplinary management of burnt patients remains a priority for MSF.
