Dr. Marc A. Ronert

Often, with simple reconstructive surgical procedures we are able to change someone’s life within just a few minutes. To not offer this to people in need would be unthinkable.”

"After about a week of doing surgery, the last day that we were there, one of the 12 year old girls that we’d operated on said to me, ‘They’re going to let me go to school now, because now I’m normal.’ It was such an 'aha' moment , that you can change a child’s life with an hour of time and effort."
