In February of 2010, five weeks after the earthquake in Haiti, Partners In Health called on Dallas based plastic surgeon, Dr. Fred Duffy to perform Reconstructive Plastic Surgery in a last ditch effort to save the limbs of the patients who were filling their hospital in the rural village of Cange. Without this surgery, many of the earthquake victims face amputation.

This essay is to shed light on the importance of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and its use to treat crushing limb injuries as well as to bring awareness to the devastation these injuries bring to their victims. This photo essay contains images that some viewers may find disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.
