Plastic Surgery in Uganda

There is an interesting article by Jonathan Cubitt in this months RCS Bulletin on plastic surgery in Uganda. He spent time with Andrew Hodges working for a charity called Comprehensive Rehabilitation Services in Uganda (CoRSU).

The website is very comprehensive with case stories outlining the work they perform. Andrew Hodges published a review article on the experiences of working in Uganda a couple of years ago.

CoRSU has been added to the charities list. . . .
