International Experience

Each year residents have the opportunity to participate in World Pediatric Project missions. This unique opportunity allows residents to experience the challenges and rewards of performing reconstructive procedures in a developing country.

St. Vincent & the Grenadines 2015 — Dr. Le

Vietnam 2015 — Dr. Pace

Guatemala 2014 — Dr. Hao

St. Vincent & the Grenadines 2013 — Dr. Browne

World Pediatric Project’s 11th annual pediatric ophthalmology and plastic surgery mission traveled to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in February 2013 for a week long visit to WPP partner hospital Milton Cato Memorial Hospital. The team was led by long time volunteers Dr. Donna Brown, pediatric ophthalmologist, and Dr. Nadia Blanchet, plastic/reconstructive surgeon.

Also accompanying the surgeons this year were Dr. Timothy Browne (VCU Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Resident) and OR nurse Karen Skelton, both of whom worked with Dr. Blanchet and CRNA Mary O’Hanley, who worked with Dr. Brown. Within the Eastern Caribbean partner nations served by WPP, there are no trained pediatric ophthalmologists or plastic surgeons. This annual mission team provides a much needed outlet for surgical care in the region. Most patients in need of ophthalmology or plastic surgery services are referred to adult practitioners who often lack the appropriate pediatric specialty training to most effectively deal with these children’s conditions.  > MORE
