Dr. Berkowitz went to the Dominican Republic for a medical surgical mission sponsored by The Curtis National Hand Center. Everyone who travels are volunteers and they provide upper extremity care of the local population that has no health insurance or access to medical care. The children have congenital and traumatic upper extremity issues and the adults have degenerative or traumatic.
