The Doctors: Dramatic Makeover For Sisters
Remember the story about Kristin, the teacher who adopted two girls from India who were considered “un-adoptable” because of facial defects. The Doctors actually surprised Kristen with surgeries and procedures for both girls, who were living with facial scars and a severely disfigured nose. A year later, both girls have recovered from their procedures and they were thrilled to join the show to reveal Munni and Roopa’s transformation. Kristin was absolutely blown away by the generosity of all the doctors involved her daughters’ procedures.
For Roopa, Dr Gregory G Gion was able to create a prosthesis that was manageable for her. The nasal prosthesis is applied with adhesives and taken off each day. Over time, as Roopa grows or the prosthesis wears out, she’ll come back for new ones. As for Munni, Dr Jon Mendelsohn used local anesthesia and anesthesia in two different procedures to treat Munni’s scars and give her more of a clear complexion. The Doctors had one more surprise in store for the family, as they surprised them with a trip to Disneyland.
