Medical Mission Trips

From January 5 – 11, 2019, a team of orthopedic surgeons, nurses and anesthesiologists brought surgical supply donations and worked with HAH staff to provide excellent medical care for as many patients as possible.


From January 14-20, 2018, Dr. Melvin P. Rosenwasser and  a team of 3 orthopedic surgeons, 4 orthopedic residents/fellows, 2 scrub nurses, and 1 research assistant/logistics coordinator embarked on a six day medical mission trip to Hôpital Adventiste d’Haïti.

Over the course of 6 days, the team saw approximately 100 patients in the orthopedic clinic and performed just under 50 complex operations. To date, this was one of FOT’s most successful trips and a direct result of the consistent and growing relationship with the Hôpital Adventiste d’Haïti and all the members of the HAH staff.
