What We’re Doing


Thousands of California's children are suffering from debilitating conditions that could be helped through reconstructive surgery and allow them to lead healthier, happier and more productive lives.

We have a simple mission: to help uninsured and underinsured children of California who could benefit from reconstructive plastic surgery yet are not able to afford this type of procedure.  The mission of CSPSERF is to help these children who want to appear more "normal" to avoid the stigma that can accompany an individual who has a different appearance.  Being bullied, ostracized, excluded,  and ignored can become a way of life, for children with physical abnormalities and by offering them the services of California board certified plastic surgeons, it can help these children live without the self-consciousness and teasing that comes with being different.
