Cao Lanh, Vietnam--Dr. Ian Wilson, Interplast volunteer plastic surgeon
Nguyen Huu Cahn is an 8-year-old boy who was born with his fingers fused together, a condition known as syndactyly. Last year the Interplast team successfully operated on him to release his little and ring finger of his left hand. This year the same fingers were released on his right hand. Nguyen’s father looked after him well after his first surgery and will do the same this year. He will need one final surgery next year to complete the process and have normal appearing and functioning hands for the rest of his life.
