62 Patients Screened

A few select members of the FACES team recently returned from the annual screening trip to Lambayeque, Peru. Our host, Hospital Belen, welcomed hundreds of people on Sunday, November 8th, for a day of cleft and vision screening.

For those of you interested in numbers, of the 62 patients screened,

  • 36 were new patients
  • 26 were returning patients from previous years
  • 17 were recommended for palate repair
  • 14 were recommended for lip repair
  • 13 were recommended for other revisions

A total of 44 patients were recommended for surgery.
