 Support Operation Mend

Depending on the individual needs of an Operation Mend wounded warrior and his family, the costs associcated with his or her wholistic care can cost up to $500,000. Often times, a number of highly complex surgeries may be required, and these expenses also include patient evaluations, transportation and housing for the patients and their families, care coordination, and a multitude of additional patient services.

UCLA provides experts in many specialties and subspecialties necessary to make these wounded warriors whole again that include:

  • Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
  • Ophthalmology at UCLA's Jules Stein Eye Institute to reconstruct eye sockets and insert prosthetic eyes
  • Otolaryngology (through UCLA's highly ranked Division of Head and Neck Surgery) to repair trachea injuries resulting from smoke inhalation from explosions
  • Internationally renowned specialists in the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TRI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Neurosurgery
  • Anesthesia/Pain Management
  • Orthopaedic surgeries, that include limb salvaging and upper limb transplantation
  • Prosthetics
  • Maxillofacial/Dentistry
  • Medical tattooing
  • Dermatology
  • Urology
  • Specialized physical rehabilitation
  • Psychiatric and Social Services
  • FOCUS (Familes OverComing Under Stress) experts that attend to not only the patient needs, but also to the issues and needs of family and patient caregivers

UCLA is seeking additional moneys from individuals, corporations, and other foundations to continue this groundbreaking work and to extend its services.
