Mission Statement

Children's Surgery International

is a Minnesota-based, non-profit volunteer organization whose focus is to serve the underprivileged of the world by providing specialized medical and surgical services in a safe, compassionate, and culturally sensitive manner: and to promote in-country self -sufficiency through professional training and support.

Our primary focus is cleft lip and cleft palate. As circumstances arise and our expertise allows, we will also do the following:

Facial deformities

Burn scar revisions

Uncomplicated orthopedic procedures

Urological malformations

Health screening and education
