UI anesthesiologist works with UI Distinguished Alumnus to help children in Guatemala

Martin Mueller, MD, who specializes in pediatric anesthesia, and John Canady, MD, an otolaryngologist who received the Carver College of Medicine Distinguished Alumni Award in 2017, are in Guatemala this week with Iowa MOST (Miles of Smiles Team), helping children with craniofacial deformities such as cleft lips and palates. Read about Edson, one of their smallest patients.

Drs. Canady and Mueller consult with Edson's family. Dr. Mueller, right, consults with Edson's family about his surgery.

Every year, the Department of Anesthesia supports medical mission trips to provide anesthesia services to underserved populations in Central and South America. Trainee participation in these mission trips is funded through the generosity of our benefactors, University of Iowa alumnus Pierce Cornelius, MD,  and his wife, Wilene Cornelius.
