Orthopedic physicians from Iowa City-based University of Iowa Hospitals completed a medical mission with a team from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to provide hand surgeries for children in Siguatepeque, Honduras, according to The Loop.

Here are three things to know:

2. The mission trip was part of Madison, Wis.-based Sharing Resources Worldwide, which sends seven different surgical team types to Honduras each year to treat patients.

3. This was Iowa Hospital's fourth annual mission to provide orthopedic care at the orphanage.
