Dr. Jonathan Davidorf recently completed a surgical expedition to Honduras. Dr. Davidorf has previously volunteered his surgical expertise to impoverished areas of Central America and Africa in need of cataract surgery. Over the course of his visit, he was able to treat dozens of individuals who would otherwise not have received surgical eye care. Dr. Davidorf’s twelve year old daughter, Carolena, accompanied him and offered her support by caring for the patients before and after their procedures and even assisting the surgical technicians with the organization and handling of the instrumentation and lens implants.
Olga Caballero, the medical coordinator in Honduras expressed her gratitude. “We are truly grateful to Dr. Davidorf for volunteering his time and surgical skill. He helped so many of our patients and his generosity is greatly appreciated.”
“These people are in desperate need of health care,” Dr. Davidorf stated. “I was honored to be asked to return to Honduras to help offer some assistance, and it was particularly meaningful to share the experience with my daughter – she was a fantastic travel partner. We hope to return again.”
