Primary lip and palate demos

Cleft trainees are usually taught how to correct primary lip and palate deformities using standardised techniques.
This way, a trainee is able to handle over ninety percent of cleft problems which commonly present as unilateral lip defects, bilateral cleft defects and cleft palate.

Yemen Medical team crawling back to life

Yemen's failed medical infrastructure was totally devastated during the war of 2015.

This week,some of my previous med team friends got together to save lives in the port city of Hodeidah where many lost their lives due to aerial bombardments.

We hope the country will return to normal and medical missions would continue for the millions displaced and those maimed by the war.

reinventing oneself with the one trick pony in smile missions

Doing a sound check,making sure one still remembers the occasional riff in aesthetic plastic surgery

Challenges ahead but one has to plod on and on,hoping to help some along the way

There will always be needs in smile missions everywhere a smilemaker goes, so the agenda includes

a. some hands on demos and trainings to mission surgeons

b.encouraging surgeons in missions to learn the correct techniques

In a way, time to pass on the smile mantle in medical missions..

riffing along then, like a new kid in town :-)
