Department of the Navy

The Department of the Navy, Navy Mexico and the Puerto Vallarta Naval Sanatorium, will conduct a surgical conference for cleft lip and palate and burns for pediatric and adult patients.

The surgical conference will be held from July 9 to 11 and the Secretary of the Navy has designated Puerto Vallarta for these operations, but the surgeries are open to all citizens of Mexico who require them, and will be offered at the Naval Sanatorium free of charge.

There will be a census of patients until July 4 and on July 8 there will be preoperative assessments of candidates for surgery on the premises of Naval Sanatorium in Puerto Vallarta.

Surgeons who will be performing these operations in Puerto Vallarta will come from Mexico City and the South Medical Hospital of the Navy of Mexico.

Not all persons will be candidates for the operations performed so it is stressed that potential patients must attend the census before July 4. Those interested can visit or contact the Naval Sanatorium by calling (322) 221-1767, or sending an email request to the Eighth Naval District at zn-8@semar.gob.mx.
