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.
For those of you interested in photos, take a look at some of our returning friends. Don’t they look great?!
