Orthopedic surgeon Paul Burton, DO, of Redlands (Calif.) Community Hospital completed a six-day mission performing joint replacement surgeries in Haiti, reports IECN.

Dr. Burton established a program with fellow orthopedic surgeon Scott Nelso, MD, to provide care for Haitians suffering injuries due to the 2010 earthquake.

Dr. Burton brought orthopedic surgeon Travis Scudday, MD, and pre-medical student Mikayla Carlson on the mission, where they treated 14 people.

"I left with immense gratitude to everyone involved for making this mission possible and transforming these lives," said Dr. Burton. "Our challenges this week were all worth it to see the positive changes in the community."
