We are glad to have this opportunity,” Dr. Andrei Zavate, a pediatric surgery specialist, stated. Over 250 patients with malformations have signed up on the lists in order to be operated on by the American doctors, however only over 50 children and teenagers have been selected, their age and the seriousness of their illness being the factors taken into account.
