– Dr. Daniel Y. MamanThere is nothing more rewarding than to be able to give back to people who don’t normally have access to life-changing surgical care.
Since the start of his career as a plastic surgeon, medical mission work has always been a major interest of Dr. Daniel Y. Maman. Both here in the United States as well as in countries abroad, he feels a strong desire to help people in need who would otherwise not be able to receive the specific healthcare they require. As evidence of this devotion, Dr. Maman has given back to communities both locally and internationally, including his pro bono service on a charity trip to Vietnam with the TranTien Foundation – a philanthropic, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free medical care, wellness education, and various supportive services to disadvantaged Vietnamese citizens.
During his trip to Vietnam, Dr. Maman lent his surgical expertise by performing over 80 complimentary operations in a span of ten days. The procedures he conducted included complex hand surgeries, microvascular lower limb reconstructions from moped accidents, breast cancer reconstructions, brachial plexus injury reconstructions with nerve transfers, and many cleft lip and palate repairs on both children and adults. In addition, he lectured to local surgeons about breast cancer reconstruction options, including both implant and microvascular surgery.
Dr. Maman is grateful to be in a position to impact people’s lives in such a positive way, and he looks forward to continuing to seek humanitarian opportunities to help ensure as many individuals as possible have access to the quality of medical care they both need and deserve.
