Burn Surgeons Travel from Russia to Observe Physicians At Medical City Plano

On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, six elite burn surgeons traveling from Russia will visit Medical City Plano in hopes of enhancing the care for burn patients in their homeland.

While at Medical City Plano, the surgeons will gain firsthand experience across the complete continuum of burn care, from first response to rehabilitation. They will be introduced to best practices in burn prevention, psychological support to patients and their families, and out-patient follow up and social support for burn victims.

“At Medical City Plano, we are proud to provide world-class burn care to our community,” said Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Plano. “We are pleased to share our expertise with these surgeons as they strive to expand their knowledge of best practices in burn care.”

The surgeons are invited to the United States under the auspices of the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. The International Visitor Leadership Program is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Through short-term visits, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience the United States first-hand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts.
