Building Medical Capacity

ReSurge International builds surgical capacity throughout the world to increase access to care and to transform lives by providing comprehensive reconstructive surgery.

ReSurge partners with local medical personnel to provide year-round access to high-quality reconstructive surgical care where none previously existed. By partnering with local doctors, ReSurge has doubled the number of surgeries it performs each year while significantly reducing operating costs.

Together with our educational programs, we are building surgical capacity and increasing access to care.
