Together with her husband, pediatric orthopaedic surgeon Robert Bernstein, MD, Carol Cozen-Bernstein founded the California-based Mobile Pediatric Orthopaedic Education program. It trains surgeons in war-torn countries how to care for children with fractures, clubfeet, scoliosis, hip dysplasia and other disabling conditions. The organization also sends volunteer surgeons to similar areas it identifies in the developing world, where there is limited or no care for children with orthopaedic problems. One of those countries is Cambodia, which has struggled to rebuild its infrastructure since its civil war. “There are thousands of children and adults who need orthopaedic medical attention due to the devastation of the Khmer Rouge during the 1970s,” she says.
