Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. MSF recruits both medical and non-medical aid workers to provide assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
MSF teams performed more than 78,000 major surgical interventions under general or spinal anesthesia in 2012 - anesthesia delivered by anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists recruited from all over the world - including from the United States. Surgeries commonly performed in the field include obstetrics/C-sections, burns, trauma, and orthopedics.
