International plastic surgery for developing countries

Dr. Volker Wedler is vice president of Interplast Switzerland (www.interplast-switzerland.ch) and board member of CHEIRA (www.cheira.org). In their free time, he and his colleagues travel to conflict zones and provide surgery and treatment to people in need free of charge. Predominantly children get the chance to lead a life under humane conditions, which they could not do but for the involvement of these physicians.
