2nd Chance - Life Surgery for Life Reconstruction | Congo

Reconstructive surgery attempts to restore the form and functions of parts of the body. It ranges from very simple techniques such as primary closure and dressings to more complex skin grafts, tissue expansion and flaps. Reconstructive surgery also restores the patients�s self-esteem and appearance.


Humanitarian programs often rebuild houses � what about rebuilding lives ?

Following in August 1998 the terrorist attacks on the US embassies in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam, the Swiss Humanitarian Aid Unit sent specialized teams of surgeons to help local surgeons deal with the traumas. Since 1999 and thanks to the fund from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, Dr Pierre Quinodoz has been organizing courses in reconstructive surgery for African surgeons in East African and the Great Lakes region.

In 2010, he had the idea of creating the Swiss Association 2nd Chance, Reconstructive surgery for Life reconstructive of which he is the President. Members of the Committee have long experience in humanitarian project:

Dr Marc Pech�re, Vice-President, Dermatologist
Prof. Fran�ois Chappuis, Treasurer, Specialist in Tropical Medicine and Humanitarian Medicine in Geneva also member of Doctors without Border.
