CURE Niger is a place of hope for children with treatable disabilities

Before Surgery

Each child’s healing journey begins with a warm welcome from our compassionate team who makes sure children and their families are physically and emotionally ready for treatment. Before surgery, children are assessed by the anesthesiologist and pediatrician.

Conditions We Treat

CURE’s world-class medical team specializes in pediatric surgical care. Without treatment, these conditions could become permanent, life-limiting disabilities.

Bowed Legs

legs that bend outwards at the knees

Burn Contractures

lack of joint movement or mobility due to a severe, often untreated burn

Cerebral Palsy

condition that affects a child’s developing brain, causing abnormal signals to the muscles

Cleft Lip

separation in the lip

Cleft Palate

separation in the roof of the mouth


condition where the foot is twisted inwards

Genu Valgum (Knock Knees)

legs that curve inward at the knees

Hip Dysplasia

hip joint being partly or fully dislocated

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bone Disease)

soft or weak bones that bend and break frequently

Untreated Trauma

untreated broken bones that heal improperly and cause mobility problems

Windswept Legs

the combination of bowed legs and knock knees; one leg bows inward and the other outward

After Surgery

After surgery, children receive regular checkups, physical and emotional therapy, and any adaptive devices needed, like wheelchairs and crutches. The path to recovery even includes fun–like making new friends in the playroom.
