Yesterday Isabel underwent the first of several surgeries to reconstruct her nose with doctors Pablo Salamea and Diego Maldonado (ENT), Dr Jonathan Cordero AND Dra Maria Siguencia at Hospital del Rio. They constructed a temporary prosthesis to begin the formation of the interior of her nose before performing reconstructive surgery on the outer area. Fortunately this will all be done before she will be looking in the mirror.
Four very talented doctors teamed up to give Isabel a much brighter future!
Isabel will grow up with a beautiful nose and will be able to breath normally. What a huge improvement in her quality of life!!
Thank you Dr Pablo, Dr Maldonado, Dr Cordero and Dra Siquencia!!
Her parents are deeply greatful to benefit from the skills of these four doctors and very thankful for our HKIE donors' generosity.
All four doctors waived their medical fees and the hospital gave HKIE a generous discount on the hospital costs.
