rt.  Dr. J. Spence Reid, an orthopedic surgeon and Operation Smile volunteer, noted that the compound had tripled in size within the first five days of the teams arrival. Lucia Mauer, a volunteer nurse with Operation Smile, noted, "The volume of work is increasing as more patients need post-operative care.  Since we got here, the change has been incredible.

In addition to the hundreds of patients that received tetanus vaccinations and general medical care, the team treated a wide range of bone fractures and made over 100 casts.

The second Operation Smile medical team that left on Tuesday, February 1, arrived in Port-au-Prince and will be working directly with the United States Navy aboard the hospital ship USNS Comfort to help treat patients still in need of urgent care.
