Global Missions

Our program is extensively involved in international service.  We have three main areas of involvement.

Legacy of Healing

Dr. Steven Schmidt conducts incredibly sophisticated missions to many different locations worldwide including Peru, Paraguay, Guyana, Zambia and the Dominican Republic.

Operation Smile

Dr. R. Michael Johnson has served with Operation Smile and has been on several burn missions to Vietnam.  He is currently a codirector of the burn program for Operation Smile.

Gabon Mission

Dr. William Rigano has performed many medical mission trips to Gabon, Africa.

Our residents are supported by the Division of Plastic Surgery to accompany Dr. Schmidt on the Legacy of Healing missions to honor the memory of our friend and colleague, Dr. Gregory Maupin.
