International Mission Work

Samaritan International

Samaritan International was founded as a mission to deliver life-saving surgery to the people of the Ukraine and to educate current surgeons and medical students in the benefits of laparoscopic surgical techniques. As director, Dr. Norwood has overseen the development of five Advanced Laparoscopic Centers in Ukrainian cities in conjunction with Willis-Knighton Medical Center.

Additionally, he has made contributions and rendered aid in the form of medicine, equipment and supplies to over 40 orphanages across the Ukraine.
