Ghana Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive plastic surgery has an immense role to play in Africa to help a huge number of devastating conditions that produce deformity and disability.

No plastic surgery services were available in Ghana until a highly specialised unit was established with the help of a Scottish Charity in 1993.

The International Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Ghana Project requires funds to maintain this essential service. You can help the project through donations of cash, equipment, or by volunteering your time.

Emmanuel
Only 1 in 10 survive Noma
but at the cost of terrible facial disfigurement and
oral deformity. £2,000 was needed for John's surgery. Happily we were able to perform his operation.
Isatou from the Gambia Albinos in Africa are ravaged by cancer. Amekoudi first received treatment in 2002 and
must attend hospital every year. We were able to provide further help in 04.
Amekoudi Ruth can happily confirm
that cleft treatment is both possible and effective.
John Mary had the tropical flesh-stripping disease Buruli Ulcer. An electric dermatome was used to provide enough skin to repair her leg.
