About the Honduras Mission Program

NSF began its partnership with One World Surgery (OWS) in 2018 and was the first medical mission team to bring spine surgery to this region – 200 miles northeast of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The primary focus of this location is adult degenerative spine surgery. NSF travels to Honduras three times a year and performs 20-30 surgeries and assesses 150-200 patients each trip. By the end of 2021, more than 1,000 patients will have come through the NSF Honduras spine program.

The Honduran spine program is our largest and fastest growing medical mission trip location. The program is operated by NSF, with support from the incredible OWS team and local Honduran medical staff that operate the Holy Family Surgery Center. This mission is unique in that NSF recruits all the volunteer medical roles (surgeons, nurses, anesthesia, physical therapy etc.) needed to safely perform surgeries and assess patients in clinic.

One World Surgery funds and operates the Holy Family Surgery Center on the property of our partner, the children’s home Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH). The 2,000-acre NPH ranch is located approximately one hour northeast of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras.

Medical volunteers spend the majority of their time in the surgery center (OR and clinic), with time set aside to interact with the NPH children and enjoy ranch life.
