International Surgical Mission Support began in 1996 when three friends with surgical training decided to use their skills and training to help the people of Haiti. The small team successfully performed 40 operations in one week within challenging conditions and thus began a fruitful, long-term partnership. The seeds of compassion were planted and have grown into the organization known as ISMS. Over time the circle of friends has grown larger as more medical professionals joined and the expertise of the organization expanded. Today, ISMS employs many specialized teams including pediatric medicine and vision services.
ISMS teams include doctors, nurses, and other health professionals who provide free medical care and surgeries for the needy. Bridging the ethnic, political, and religious differences, the teams help improve and save the lives of those who feel forgotten. Groups travel with the equipment and supplies to set up four fully functional operating rooms, a recovery room, and a pharmacy anywhere in the world within hours of arrival.
