Foreign medical professionals traveled to Cambodia recently to help heal hearts and mend facial deformities.
A team of ten American heart surgeons from New York Presbyterian Hospital launched its first mission in Phnom Penh February 28 to March 5.
The doctors operated on nine young heart patients at the Phnom Penh Heart Center.
Patients treated were all below the age of 16 and hailed from Kampong Cham, Kampong Speu, Kampong Chhnang, Kandal, Kampong Thom and Takeo provinces.
In a separate effort, around 50 medical volunteers for Operation Smile recently joined nearly 100 Cambodian doctors to operate on children suffering from cleft lips, cleft palates, burns and other facial deformities.
Their trip lasts from March 10 to 18.
