Richard K. Root Plastic Surgery Library


Nobody's Children recognizes the important role plastic surgery can play in improving the lives of children suffering from burns, congential problems, and trauma. A logical extension of our mission has been the establishment of aPlastic Surgery Library at the University Hospital in Caracas, Venezuela. This library is named in memory of Dr. Richard K. Root, who was a major influence in our lives.


With the generous assistance of Dr. Mary McGrath from UCSF, this library is stocked with the key textbooks to allow training of a new generation of surgeons to help the less fortunate children of Venezuela.
