2015 was the fourth consecutive year that I led a team from Medical Missions for Children to travel to Batangas, the Philippines for a volunteer surgery mission. This year the team consisted of Dr. Jeffrey Anderson (anesthesiologist from Folsom Anesthesia Medical Group), Dr. Rebecca Garza (a Stanford plastic surgery resident), Eddie Brock, RN (a Stanford nurse), Russel DeMallie and Natalie Harris (nurses from Massachusetts General Hospital) and myself.read more

This week’s blog post is about giving back. We feel fortunate to be in a position where be can provide Sacramento the best plastic surgery and non-invasive procedures available. And since we’re so fortunate, we like to pass on the success we’ve been given by our clients and our community by giving back. Here are a few of the things we do when we’re not busy making you look busty and beautiful.

Hi everyone. I just got back from a ten day surgery trip to Batangays, Philippines. The trip was organized by Medical Missions for Children and our group consisted of great doctors and medical professionals from around the U.S. It’s a great organization. We went with two surgeons, two anesthesiologists, and three nurses. We also had the help of a volunteer who helped do all the “little” things to make the trip successful.
The trip was great. We did procedures on about 20 children, mostly cleft lip and cleft palates. A good portion of the children had no access to medical care. In the United States, these deformities are completely addressed by the time a child is one year old.read more
