Dr. Christopher Brooks Helps Lives on a Global Level

Dr. Christopher Brooks, MD FACS, Director of Brooks Plastic Surgery located in South Florida, is traveling to San Pedro Sula, Honduras for ten days this month to provide surgical care to the children of San Pedro Sula. This is Dr. Brooks’s twelfth mission trip to Honduras to provide cleft lip and palate, craniofacial and pediatric reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Brooks, who trained in Craniofacial Surgery and Pediatric Plastic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, specializes in many aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery. He enjoys splitting his practice and time between pediatrics and adults, and spends forty days each year doing mission work in South America. He has recently been named Director of Interplast South, a subgroup of the organization who, in partnership with the Ruth Paz Foundation, has been making the trip to South America since 1969.

Brooks, “I am delighted to join the leadership team of InterplastSouth. This organization, in partnership with Ruth Paz Foundation, has been providing cleft and reconstructive plastic surgery care to the children of Honduras for decades,” said Dr. Brooks. “It is an honor to be asked to serve in this role so that I may help lead Interplast South as it continues this mission for years to come.”

While Dr. Brooks enjoys helping patients in his local community, he also focuses much of his time on finding ways to impact and change lives on a more global level. His services to the children of South America are donated by him and his practice, and he looks forward to many more trips to countries where his services are needed
