Reconstructing Faces…Transforming Lives

Oral surgeons like Dr. Grant McGann are experts in facial and jaw reconstructions, particularly with the injuries associated with facial trauma. These are often complex cases which require years of experience, extensive planning and an entire team of providers to deliver the best possible outcomes. At San Diego’s Sharp Medical Center, where Dr. McGann is a member of the medical staff, one such facial reconstructive case was profiled in the ongoing series The Sharp Experience. In this moving case, a patient by the name of Blessing suffered a devastating facial injury as a young boy in Africa. In this documentary, we follow Blessing’s case and see how a peer of Dr. McGann’s helped to transform this patient’s life through reconstructive surgery (Click here for a list of viewing times). In fact, Dr. McGann has treated a number of patients like Blessing as a participating surgeon who donates his surgical skills and office space to San Diego’s Fresh Start Surgical Gifts charity. In one such case, Dr. McGann played a pivotal role in transforming the live of patient Beloved, who had suffered a devastating facial injury as a 9 year old boy in Africa. Profiled in People magazine, this inspiring story shows the power of giving, courage, and reconstructive surgery–to read more about Beloved’s story, click here.
