The National Foundation for Facial Reconstruction, formerly The Society for the Rehabilitation of the Facially Disfigured, was founded to help provide treatment and reconstructive surgery to facially disfigured patients who are unable to afford private care; to train health professionals in the reconstructive surgery field; to encourage research; and to educate the public. To provide multidisciplinary treatment services, the Foundation sponsors the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery located at the New York University Medical Center, which encompasses ten plastic surgery clinics, and education and research laboratories.
The Foundation and/or the Institute publish article reprints, stories and pictures of patients, an annual report, and a newsletter. Serial publication: SDF (newsletter)--stories on Foundation and Institute services and activities, research developments, and the progress of individual patients.
