Victor and his father came from Santa Marineta to get help from the Interplast team. When Victor was 4 years old he was playing with a machete and accidentally cut his hand. After it happened, he was taken to the clinic in his town and he needed to have one of his fingers amputated. Despite this treatment, he still could not move his remaining fingers very well and it was creating problems for him in school when he needed to write. Our surgeons hoped to repair his tendon, providing him more movement in the hand. His freckles, charming personality, bright smile and cooperative spirit endeared him to everyone on the team.
