Surgical Team Trips
ReSurge International sends volunteer medical teams to empower developing world
surgeons by teaching and performing approximately 1,500 life-transforming
surgeries with them each year, helping to reduce the backlog of cases in
those countries and to provide hands-on training.

Team members staffed on these trips should not plan any international
travel one month prior to the ReSurge trip due to difficult visa authorization
processes. ReSurge will hold team members’ passports until the visa
authorization letter is received and then apply for humanitarian visas.
Due to excess baggage issues, a maximum of five team members will be
given permission to extend their stay and ReSurge will ask you to pay $100.
No deviations from the team itinerary can be allowed for India.
