Surgical Missions

Hand Help is an annual medical mission to provide free hand surgeries to the underprivileged of Honduras, repairing injuries and deformities of the upper limb from shoulder to fingers. Dr. J. Grant Thomson has led a team of plastic, orthopedic, and hand surgeons as well as anesthesiologists and operating room staff since 2000. Please visit our website at http://handhelp.org for more information about us and about ways to support us.
