Surgery Story - Georgette Couvall

 
My name is Georgette Couvall. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I was born (10/16/75) with a Craniofacial condition which included nasal, forehead, cheek-bone deformity and absence of my  right eye. I've had approximately thirteen surgeries and I'm very happy with the outcome. Thanks to my Craniofacial/Cleft Surgeon (Dr. Kenneth E. Salyer) and my family, I'm now living a normal life. Dr. Salyer has not only made a medical miracle for me, but has also done the same for many other Craniofacial, Cleft and Craniopagus (conjoined at the head) patients from all over the world. I love him like I love my own family. He is the best.

Dr. Salyer is the Founder & Chairman of the World Craniofacial Foundation http://www.worldcf.org) in Dallas, Texas U.S.A.

The World Craniofacial Foundation is working with several Craniofacial Centers outside the U.S.A. and sending their patients who are born in countries outside the U.S.A. to these centers.

Here is the link that lists these centers:

I just thought I'd share all of this with you.

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Georgette Couvall
