The SurgeryBA Foundation (SBAF) will improve the lives of children who would otherwise live with a facial deformity for the rest of their lives.

"Congenital craniofacial disorders affect more children every year than all childhood cancers combined."*1 Ranging from cleft lip and palate to traumatic deformities, these treatable disorders have a tremendous negative impact on a child's development, growth and future life.

To help children who cannot afford surgical procedures required to treat these conditions, The Plastic Surgery Center of Buenos Aires ( has established the SurgeryBA Foundation (SBAF) -- a non-profit charitable foundation exclusively dedicated to treating and caring of children with congenital malformations of the face and head, offering a lifeline to children who cannot afford treatment or are marginalized by the health insurance systems.

The Plastic Surgery Center of Buenos Aires, a leading full-service plastic surgery provider, will donate resources, expertise, medical procedures and logistical and technological support to the foundation.

"The SurgeryBA Foundation treats patients with congenital craniofacial abnormalities like: cleft lip & palate, hemifacial microsomia, Treacher-Collins Syndrome, Cranyosinostosis, Apert Syndrome, Crouzon Syndrome among others, as well as traumatic deformities and head & neck tumors," explains Dr. Diego Steinberg, SBAF's chief medical adviser. "By providing human and technological resources, the foundation's programs are focused on the reintegration of patients into society as productive individuals."

SurgeryBA's Director, Rodrigo Benadon, sums up the spirit of the foundation: "When you treat a child of a facial deformity, you change that child's life forever."
