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.
We build partnerships with local hospitals and conduct surgical mission trips to some of the poorest regions of the world. There we provide pediatric surgical and medical care to children who would not otherwise have access to such highly specialized services.
Our procedures include reconstructive surgery for cleft lips and palates, head and neck deformities, urological malformations and general pediatric surgery. CSI also supports an interventional cardiology initiative in Ethiopia that addresses their communities’ need for treatment of the effects of severe rheumatic heart disease.
We provide instruction and training to local surgeons and other medical providers such as doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses and technicians. Our educational mission is to provide local medical professionals with hands-on training in the operating room and at the patient bedside, with the goal to make the local surgical community self-sufficient in providing care.
