In December, Dr. Paul Grossfeld of Rady’s Children’s Hospital/UCSD led his 4th pediatric cardiac mission to Cambodia. 35 children were evaluated for procedures and of those 26 were scheduled for surgery. This mission has also been a teaching mission and it was learned that some of the previously trained doctors at the hospital have been able to perform some of these life saving procedures.
