The Cao Lanh team just has completed its third surgical day with great success. The team has magically coming together in one cohesive group, and complete strangers are starting to anticipate each other during the surgical process. We also feel as though we are part of a large hospital family. Each morning our pre- and post-operative patients and parents greet us enthusiastically and the other children wave and gaze in amazement at these funny looking people. Our patients mainly have been children with cleft lips and palates, but also a surprising number of children who were born with fused fingers. Two of them are pictured above and their favorite thing to do is to crayon the coloring books ReSurge sent. The operation to release fused fingers is in fact very complicated. The hand has to be restored to full function and there are abnormal finger bones that have to be separated. Our surgeons were not expecting so many, but are masterfully addressing them.
