Denver Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Zwiebel, Visits China For Cleft Lip Reconstruction

August 3: I just finished the first case of our schedule here in Pingliang, China, reconstructing a cleft lip and nose deformity in a 12 year old girl. The team is relieved that the case went well: there is a tension until we get the first case done and know we work well as a team and with the local hospital staff.

Dr. Zwiebel’s Contribution with Haiti Disaster Medical Relief

I received a phone call, late Wednesday night requesting I join International Medical Relief team going to Port au Prince,Haiti. We left Friday night, encountering an obstacle,Saturday morning, with security refusing to let our team board our connecting flight from NYC. Apparently, they lost authorizing paperwork. We were diverted to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and took a 10 hour van ride to get to Port au Prince.

My role here has been as a primary care doctor and as a reconstructive surgeon tending to wounds of varying complexity.
