Medical Missions

Operation Smile held its inaugural medical mission in Puebla, Mexico, and provided surgeries to more than 100 patients with cleft lip and cleft palate. The medical mission will took place at one of the facilities within the Christus Muguerza Hospital Group.

Since beginning programs in Mexico in 2006, Operation Smile has conducted 56 medical missions. Operation Smile’s goal with its programs in Mexico is to not only focus on its ability to treat cleft lip and cleft palate but also to increase the surgical capacity of the country overall by deploying surgical programs, supplies and hosting education and training programs.
