Surgical Mission Trips
Our department is dedicated to extending our care beyond the walls of our facilities. In 2014, Jefferson’s Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery created Project Chance (Complex Head and Neck Care and Education) with the goal of bringing aid to those living with terminal diseases or congenital disabilities. On multiple occasions per year, attending surgeons, resident surgeons, nursing staff, and anesthesiologists make trips to countries in need including Haiti, Guatemala and Belize.
Project CHANCE has helped hundreds of patients, and successfully completed many complex head and neck surgeries including free-tissue transfers.
The program additionally aims to empower surgeons from other countries by providing hands-on education both in their home countries and at Jefferson, so that they may bring new found knowledge and skill to treat those in need.
