Surgical Mission to Haiti

Dr. Goodwin joined a team of physicians from the University of
Miami on a surgical mission to Port-au-Prince, Haiti in December
2008 and June 2009. The trips were organized by Seth Thaller
M.D., Chief of Plastic Surgery at the University of Miami, and
Vincent DeGennaro M.D., General Surgeon at the University of
Miami and Miami VA Hospital. The trip was supported by the
University of Miami and Project Medishare. Smiletrain and
Operation Smile also contributed to each of the trips, respectively.

The mission was dedicated to cleft lip and palate surgery,
however, burn reconstruction, skin lesion/cancer reconstruction,
and hernia repair were also performed. The surgeries took place
at L'Universitaire Hopital de la Paix in Port-au-Prince.

While there are many impoverished nations that are in need of this
kind of medical care, Dr. Goodwin feels a special connection
with Haiti. His mother and much of his family were born and
raised there. Since beginning his medical career, he has aspired to
participate in volunteer work such as this, particularly in Haiti. He
plans to also do similar missions in other countries in need,
however, Haiti will always be a priority.

Acknowledgement goes to the surgical team organized by Dr.
Thaller and Dr. DeGennaro, their surgical residents, the
anesthesiologists and their residents, and the medical students. On
the last trip a pediatric cardiologist also participated in the pre-
and post-operative management of the patients. Several family
members of the physicians also contributed their efforts in
organizing the surgical process. I must especially acknowledge
the nurses, surgical technologists, translators, drivers, and
organizers from Medishare who made this all possible.
Dr. Goodwin recently participated in the disaster relief mission in Haiti organized
by Project Medishare in Partnership with the University of Miami.
