About Us

The Foundation for Special Surgery (FSS) is a 501 (C) 3  nonprofit  humanitarian organization dedicated to providing highly complex surgical care in communities around the world where the need is great, but the expertise is lacking. Our work has taken us to several communities in  Peru, Mexico, Bangladesh, Vietnam,  Liberia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda and Cameroon. The unmet surgical burden is high in these countries but capacity to provide complex surgical care is low.

We believe  everyone, everywhere deserves world-class surgical care 

Our Mission
