Reconstructive Surgery for children in Indonesia

In Indonesia, RS Surabaya Indonesia (RSSI) has donated extensive time and financial resources to undertake cleft palate and complex cranio-facial surgery on children for a number of years.

Cleft Palate Program at RSPS

Cleft Palate Centre started at RS Premier Surabaya (RSPS), Surabaya in 2001. This is a joint program funded by the Ramsay Health Care, RSPS, Smile Train, Citra Baru Foundation and the Australian Cranio Facial Institute in Adelaide. The program is well supported by the medical community and specialists association in Surabaya City (Plastic & Reconstruction Surgery, Anesthesiology, Dentistry, Speech Therapy, etc). Over the years, this program has also gained the support of other businesses and corporate organisations interested in assisting this community program.

More than 2500 patients have been operated on at Premier Surabaya Hospital in conjunction with the Surabaya CLP Centre.

Cranio-facial Program at RSPS

In 2008, RS Premier Surabaya (RSPS) Surabaya commenced a cranio-facial program following on from its successful cleft palate program. The program involves many specialties including neurosurgery, plastic surgery, ENT surgery, paediatric surgery and paediatric medicine, medical rehabilitation and speech therapy. Over 223 patients have been operated on at the hospital since this time with excellent outcomes. In addition to the commitment provided by RSPS, Ramsay Health Care commits $50,000 (AUD) per annum to this program which is enough for 36 cases to be undertaken each year at the hospital.

The Indonesian Corporation, Wings Group, is also committed to ongoing funding and support of this program.
