What We Do

Since 1969, ReSurge International (formerly Interplast) has built surgical capacity and provided more than 110,000 surgeries in developing countries around the world.

We restore function and improve lives by providing the full scope of reconstructive surgical care for children and adults in underserved areas of the world.

We also build surgical skills in low-resource settings through the ReSurge Global Training Program—deploying training and education programs, developing comprehensive curriculum in the reconstructive surgical skills needed to treat local populations, and developing the next generation of humanitarian reconstructive surgeons through global networks.
