We change lives, one child at a time.

Children’s Surgery International is a Minnesota-based, nonprofit volunteer organization that provides free medical and surgical services to children in need around the world. Our care is safe, compassionate and culturally sensitive and benefits children who may have severely limited access to pediatric medical and surgical services.

CSI fosters self-sufficiency through curriculum-based, hands-on training and education. We work with local surgical teams, doctors and nurses to build a sustainable foundation of essential surgical and medical skills. This means that children receive high-quality surgical care in their communities during our missions and in the future.
