Our mission is equally focused on providing access to surgical care and igniting the spirit of service. One World Surgery’s three cornerstone programs include operating global surgery centers, leading surgical medical missions and supporting local medical communities through education and training.
Surgeries performed 2009-2016
EAR, NOSE, AND THROAT
The impact of our work is immediately apparent when our patients leave our facility, not only physically healed; but with smiles on their faces and a renewed sense of hope for the future.
GLOBAL SURGERY CENTERS
One World Surgery funds and operates the Holy Family Surgery Center, which has three operating rooms, seven overnight recovery bays, a dental clinic and an eye clinic. Dr. Merlin Antúnez, orthopedic surgeon, is the full-time, on-site Medical Director. Providing this continuity of care and operating a standalone facility are unique and rare within the nonprofit surgical care space. After surgery, our patients can return to work, care for their families, and choose their own destiny.
Education is the most powerful tool to change the world. The conference center in Honduras was built to host our education and training programming. Our focus on education, training, and capacity-building assures that we are not only filling a gap in the current medical system but also investing in the future of surgical care for the countries we serve.
