I am very happy to have the ability to provide my expertise for the underserved community in Ecuador. Cleft issues can often leave families in disarray in those communities and being able to give back to those communities is an important part of being a physician and doctor.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) March 09, 2019
Dr. Babak Azizzadeh will participate in a medical residency designed to provide comprehensive cleft care for patients born with cleft lip and palate in underserved communities. Together with The Global Smile Foundation, Dr. Azizzadeh, and several other volunteers will provide cleft care to patients encountering socioeconomic barriers to treatment. He will begin the mission on March 9, 2019 and will provide his expert medical treatments to all who need them.
The Global Smile Foundation has provided treatments for cleft issues in underserved areas of the world for thirty-one years. Volunteer doctors and nurses have helped implement comprehensive cleft care in over twenty countries in South America, Africa, and the Middle East. Dr. Azizzadeh has chosen to work with the organization because he believes in its mission and has been a driving force in the development and advancement of facial plastic surgery.
Dr. Azizzadeh earned his medical degree from the UCLA School of Medicine. He continued his studies with a residency in head and neck surgery at UCLA and a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Harvard Medical School. Prior to opening his current practice, Dr. Azizzadeh served as a Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School, an Assistant Professor of Surgery at UCLA, and has served as the Co-Chairman of Cedars-Sinai’s annual Advances in Multispecialty Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Symposium.
“I am very happy to have the ability to provide my expertise for the underserved community in Ecuador.
