Free craniofacial surgeries now available in Davao

Free craniofacial surgeries are now being offered in Davao to help individuals dealing with cleft and craniofacial anomalies. The International Cooperation of Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines, Inc. (NCFPI) has announced this initiative, with Dr. Dax Carlo G. Pascasio leading the Filipino professional team. The medical mission will take place from November 20 to 22 at the United Davao Specialists Hospital and Medical Center, Inc. (UniDav) in Matina, Davao City. Patients will undergo assessments on the first day and receive postoperative care on the third day. The foundation aims to assist around 20 to 25 patients with craniofacial anomalies. For those not accommodated during the mission, free operations will be available every Thursday morning at UniDav Hospital. Dr. Pascasio explained that a majority of patients with these anomalies come from Mindanao, which is why he decided to relocate there. Despite limited support from Local Government Units (LGUs), most surgeries are sponsored by the Taiwanese counterpart of the foundation. The foundation covers hospitalization costs beyond what PhilHealth provides, as well as transportation expenses and the needs of malnourished patients. Linus Shang-l
