International Volunteer Medical Missions

“You hope that the gift of helping others on a medical mission trip will better their lives… The truth is that you’re the one who emerges enriched, humbled and changed forever.”

—Dr. Marie Gdalevitch, Former International Center for Limb Lengthening (ICLL) Fellow reflecting on her experience on an ICLL mission trip

Doctors and medical personnel from the International Center for Limb Lengthening at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics are dedicated to bringing the same expert care they provide in Baltimore to those who might not have access to it around the globe. Our doctors volunteer on international medical missions to save limbs and change the lives of patients living in countries including Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Uganda, Pakistan, Liberia and Nepal. International mission trips are made possible in part by the Save-A-Limb Fund, a program of Sinai Hospital, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Dr. John Herzenberg, Dr. Michael Assayag and Team Sinai are featured in this Baltimore Jewish Times article about the April 2018 medical mission to Haiti.
