Medical Mission Trips

Dr. Mitchell has been involved in annual pro bono medical mission trips since 2007. On these trips he performs cataract surgery on patients who are blind, or have severely reduced vision due to advanced cataracts. The conditions and lack of proper equipment can make the technical performance of the surgery challenging, and often requires the use of older manual techniques. The results are rewarding when the patch comes off the next day, and the patient can see again and return to a more normal and independent life. Dr. Mitchell volunteers with:

  • Casa de Luz (D.C. Metro area 501(c) charity organization)
  • SEE International (Surgical Eye Expeditions International)
  • Island Impact Ministries (U.S. registered non-profit 501(c)servicing the Dominican Republic and Haiti)
