Volunteer for a Mission Trip

Are you a surgeon or a spine-focused medical professional looking for a rewarding way to use your expertise to give individuals a second chance at life?

Our mission site location in Tegucigalpa, Honduras offers the opportunity to bring medical and non-medical volunteers on our mission trips. We will build a team of about 20 volunteers for each trip who will help with everything from welcoming patients to working in the operating room—offering a variety of ways for NSF supporters to get involved and give back.

NSF is in need of the following:

  • Pre-op nurses
  • Scrub techs
  • Circulators
  • Anesthesiologists/CRNA
  • Recovery nurses
  • Sterilizations techs

About the Honduras Mission

The NSF Honduras mission team will travel to the One World Surgery – SCA Holy Family Surgery Center located on the 2,000 acre ranch of the children’s home Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH). NSF will be the first team to bring spine surgery to the center – a very exciting prospect for us and the people of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Our primary focus will be adult degenerative spine cases; and, as our mission program progresses at this site, we hope to bring in local residents, fellows and medical students to create teaching opportunities and build a sustainable spine treatment program.
