Dr. Varma and Mending Kids Mission Trip to Guatemala

This March, Dr. Namrata Varma went on a mission trip to Guatemala through an organization called Mending Kids, a non-profit that provides surgical care for children across the globe.

While in Guatemala, Dr. Varma and her team operated on 41 children and were able to remove tracheostomies (long-term breathing tubes placed in the neck to bypass an obstruction of the airway) in 2 patients who were once told they would need to have the tube in their neck for life.
