Charitable Endeavors

Dr. Black’s final love is charitable surgery and includes surgical mission collaborations with India and Romania. Working with the Rotary Club on each project, the two missions serve very different purposes. In India, children and adults travel for days to find care for cleft lip and burn-related deformities. In Romania, children with cleft lip and palate deformities and other craniofacial deformities are treated in a multi-disciplinary fashion modeled after the treatment offered at UVA. The intent here is to train the Romanian plastic surgeons in this type of specialized care. Dr. Black has been a critical member in establishing this incredible and fruitful partnership.
