Mission Statement


ReSurge’s mission is to provide reconstructive surgical care and build surgical capacity in developing countries. The organization’s goals are:

  • Build surgical skills in low-resource settings by creating and deploying (developing world-relevant) surgical and educational programs
  • Increase access to high-quality surgical care for the poor by developing the next generation of humanitarian reconstructive surgeons and their local teams
  • Restore function and improve lives by providing the full scope of reconstructive surgery for more poor children and adults


ReSurge envisions a world in which no human being suffers physically or emotionally from a repairable congenital deformity or injury. To reach that vision, ReSurge partners with volunteers and overseas medical partners to both provide surgical care and to educate and empower local medical professionals so that high-quality surgical access is available year-round--now and for generations to come.


ReSurge International (formerly Interplast) provides reconstructive surgical care for the poor and builds surgical capacity in developing countries. We restore the dreams of those with deformities and injuries, and impact the world by renewing the health of thousands of children and adults each year so they can go to school, provide for their families and contribute to society.
