How We Help
Due to the complexity of pediatric heart disease, successful treatment depends on advanced medical facilities and highly-trained medical professionals. These are rarely available in developing countries due to a lack of resources.
Surgeons of Hope has developed a sustainable strategy to provide care to children in need of heart surgery.
We approach the need on three key fronts by giving urgently needed care, cultivating skills in local medical teams, and constructing centers of care in developing countries. Several studies on pediatric cardiology in developing countries have shown this to be the most sustainable approach.
