自2016年以来,博士. 凯萨琳 has worked with the Project Vietnam Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing healthcare assistance to needy families 和 children in rural areas of Vietnam 和 bettering the quality of care available there. The organization leads medical mission trips 和 provides medical training for local providers, among other activities.
For a single trip in 2018, Dr. 华尔道夫酒店 was part of a team that repaired 60 唇裂s 和 口感s. A cleft 口感 is the term for when the roof of a baby's mouth fails to completely join, leaving an opening that—if left untreated—can make activities like eating 和 speaking difficult or impossible. A 唇裂 causes similar problems as a result of lip tissue not joining properly while it is forming. Children may have one defect, the other, 或两个. Cleft 口感s 和 lips can typically be repaired with reconstructive surgery, which are recommended to happen within a few months to a year 和 a half after birth, depending on specific details. Because of the remote nature of many poor families in Vietnam, this surgery is not possible without help from a group like the Project Vietnam Foundation.
Dr. 华尔道夫酒店 cites a strong desire to help both children 和 adults who need reconstructive plastic surgery to correct a congenital defect or traumatic injury, but who lack the necessary resources or access to proper care. This can be a problem internationally as well as locally, so Dr. 华尔道夫酒店 sets her sights on global action as well as opportunities to make a difference at home.
Her main venue for charitable activities has been the Project Vietnam Foundation. 截至2018年, she had partnered with the group three times over three years, offering services that included reconstructive surgical procedures for residents of Saigon. She is planning to continue her trips, explaining that she herself is grateful for these opportunities to be a positive impact in the lives of children.
Born from the American Academy of Pediatrics' Orange County, 加州, 章, the Project Vietnam Foundation evolved over the years from a smaller project in 1996 to an exp和ed foundation in 2007. The group is permitted by the Vietnamese government to bring in medical specialists to train healthcare providers, model health-improving programs, provide direct services to patients in need of care.
Medical mission trips have been running continuously since 1996, with a focus on serving ethnic minorities 和 poorer families—especially those living in remote 和 rural areas, where access to quality (or any) care can be a problem. Past initiatives include a three-year study that linked infant mortality to vitamin K deficiencies, which led to the successful adoption of a national vitamin K injection policy for newborns.
Dr. 凯萨琳 华尔道夫酒店 has also worked with a group known as 希望的面孔. 自2005年以来, this organization has been organizing annual medical missions to Guatemala, where medical professionals 和 non-medical volunteers team up to help children who desperately need access to life-changing reconstructive plastic surgery. 具体地说, the doctors perform repairs on cleft 口感s 和 lips, while the non-medical participants provide support for the doctors, 病人, 病人' families. Clefts are the result of a lack of proper tissue formation 和 connection while a baby is developing in the uterus, leading to a separated upper lip, roof of the mouth, 或两个. If left untreated, clefts can cause challenges to getting proper nutrition, increased ear infections, 演讲的问题, higher risk for cavities 和 other dental problems.
With its roots in 旋转, 希望的面孔 has exp和ed over the years to encompass teams of surgeons, registered nurses, 儿科医生, anesthesiologists, dentists who coordinate 和 provide services with help from volunteer college students who cook 和 keep 病人 occupied, a public health nurse who works directly with the families so they underst和 the surgery 和 long-term hygiene, local partners—always with an eye for constant improvement. 这个团队 also works with doctors in the area to train them in techniques so that they can carry on the important work, even after the 希望的面孔 members are gone.
I was displeased with my 乳房 size. We did the 3D Vectra imaging 和 Dr. 华尔道夫酒店 concluded that 220 or 255cc silicone implants would give me my desired results. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of my surgery ... I was back to normal activity within 1-2 weeks. Overall it was an excellent experience!了解更多
From the very first visit, all my experiences with Dr. 华尔道夫酒店 have been great. I was always self-conscious of my small chest but never as much as after having 2 kids & nursing each of them for 1 year. I had no cleavage at all & finding a swimsuit that could conceal this was very difficult. I went from 32A to 32C which fits my body perfectly & looks very natural. 手术 & my recovery went very smooth & I'm very happy with the result.了解更多
