Michelle Spring, Webster Fellow, with Noma patient
Originally uploaded by interplast
Dehradun, India -- Michelle Spring, Webster Fellow Here I am with a patient and a mold of his face. He had Noma (an infection that attacks the face) and lost much of the bone on the left side. We placed an implant, based on that plaster mold, to reconstruct the left side of his face.
This trip will remain imprinted in my memory forever. I hope to come back again. The need is absolutely incredible.
