[Accra, Ghana] – RESTORE Worldwide, Inc.: The Foundation for Reconstructive Surgery is returning to the Ho Teaching Hospital in Ghana. The upcoming mission is scheduled to take place from November 6 to 10, 2023.

A globally recognized nonprofit organization RESTORE Worldwide, Inc. is returning to Ghana on its 35th global mission exactly 12 months after achieving a record-breaking 174 life-changing interventions in October 2022.

The primary objective of this mission is to continue RESTORE’s mission of transforming lives and restoring hope by conducting free reconstructive surgeries across the world. The team, consisting of volunteer expert plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical techs, and nurses from the United States, France, Germany, Belgium, Morocco, Ghana, Mali, and the United Kingdom will reconstruct the lives of those in need.

The team will address a wide range of cases, including congenital deformities, post-traumatic deformities, post-burn contractures, soft tissue tumors, benign or malignant, all breast anomalies, soft tissue defects, and genital anomalies. These conditions can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, affecting their ability to perform everyday tasks and participate fully in society.

Founder and CEO of RESTORE, Dr. Michael K. Obeng, a Harvard-trained surgeon renowned for his expertise in plastic and reconstructive surgery, will lead this diverse and highly skilled team of medical professionals from around the world. They will bring their specialized knowledge and experience to provide the highest quality care to patients throughout the mission.

In addition, the medical mission will focus on capacity building and knowledge transfer to local medical professionals. By collaborating with local healthcare providers, the mission aims to enhance the long-term sustainability of healthcare practices in Ghana. Through training and mentorship programs, the mission seeks to empower local medical practitioners to continue providing essential care to their communities.

“We are honored to bring together a global team of medical professionals who share a common goal of making a positive impact on the lives of individuals deformities,” said Dr. Michael K. Obeng. He went on to add, “Our mission extends beyond providing surgical interventions; it is about restoring hope, dignity, and improving the overall well-being of our patients.”

RESTORE recognizes the importance of collaborative partnerships and welcomes the support of local organizations, government agencies, and volunteers who share their vision of transforming lives through reconstructive surgery.
