Accordingly, about 50 patients will be receiving checkups, with the surgeons expecting to provide surgery for 30 patients.

The programme is designed to support patients with scarring to the head, face, and neck areas after injury and children with congenital anomalies.

It is the 14th time that the U.S. delegation has come to Vietnam to perform surgery and transfer surgical techniques to Vietnamese doctors at the NOH.

The programme will run through until November 10.

FACE TO FACE, is a humanitarian program conducted under the auspices of the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS Foundation).

In both U.S. and abroad surgeons assist those who suffer from facial deformities caused by birth or trauma. Most of those who have been helped abroad are children./.
