Tuesday Transformations in Zhaotong China

Tuesday Transformations in Zhaotong China

Need we say more?! Take a look at these cleft lip transformations and the incredible skills of our two surgeons, Dr. Roy Hobbs and Dr. Gerald Cho, who are changing the lives of these children forever.

Dr. Hobbs is the lead surgeon on this mission. He lives in South Carolina and has been on over 25 missions thus far. Dr. Cho lives in St. Louis and this is his first mission, a 13-year dream come true for him.

Both dedicated doctors take time off from their own practice to travel across the world to provide these free surgeries to those who otherwise could not afford it.

The surgeons are supported by a team of 16 nurses, doctors, and non-medical staff who traveled to Zhaotong, China to transform the lives of children born with cleft lips and palates.

Little Fei Yan stole everyone’s heart with his warm nature and great attitude. As you can see from the photo below, he was scooting around the ward just a day after surgery!
