The Surgery Weekend Program provides comprehensive, high quality medical care to low-income, uninsured, and underinsured children with physical deformities and other conditions. The Surgery Weekend Program consists of six, eight-week Surgery Weekend Cycles per year. Each eight-week Surgery Weekend Cycle includes an intensive 2-day Surgery Weekend where volunteer medical professionals provide extensive reconstructive surgeries. Throughout the rest of the Cycle, Fresh Start holds dental clinics, laser treatments, speech therapy services, and health education to ensure comprehensive medical care. At each Surgery Weekend Cycle, Fresh Start treats approximately 65 children, totaling approximately 400 children annually.
Medical treatments are provided at the Fresh Start Clinic at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, CA, USA by an all-volunteer team of medical professionals. All lodging, food, and transportation to the Clinic is provided at no cost to the family.
