Our gifted surgeons – the best in the world – were able to complete Amir’s surgery beautifully.
Amir was a special gift to the GSF Guayaquil team, right from the beginning.
On screening day, the team recognized the severity of his condition. He had a complete bilaterial cleft lip. To properly repair the cleft, a “setback” procedure would be required. Few surgeons would be prepared to perform such a complex surgery. Most would simply repair the lip, leaving insufficient tissue to enable Amir’s mouth to grow and develop without deformity.
Lucky for Amir, his mom brought him to GSF. Our gifted surgeons – the best in the world – were able to complete his surgery beautifully. When his mom saw him post-op, she burst into joyful, grateful tears.
Mom was not alone. Team members joined in her tears and her gratitude.
It’s why we do what we do.
