Dr. Morin recently completed a mission to Ibague, Colombia with Dr. Francoise Firmin, the world’s authority on ear reconstruction. Dr. Morin and Dr. Firmin worked with the organization Que Canten Los Ninos to perform 1st and 2nd stage ear reconstruction on children with microtia (congenital absence of the ear). During his time with Dr. Firmin, Dr. Morin learned the important yet subtle techniques that make her results the best in the world.
Nine days after the January 2010 earthquake, Dr. Morin traveled to Port-au-Prince, Haiti with Miami Children’s Hospital, the University of Miami, and Project Medishare to perform life and limb saving surgery on children. Dr. Morin was the only plastic surgeon at the Port-au-Prince airport “hospital” during the week he was there.
