Dr. Nirav and Neha Shah Family Medical Mission

Dominican Team 2014 Shah Foundation
Our Team in the Dominican Republic

Dominican 2014 Shah FoundationThe Dr. Nirav and Neha Shah Family Medical Mission is a non-profit organization that brings the art and science of care practiced at Princeton Brain and Spine to the Bonao region, a remote area in the central highlands of the Dominican Republic. We provide unparalleled care to patients in the area at no cost to them. The Medical Mission has made a difference in the lives of the people of Bonao and will continue to do so in the future by strengthening and diversifying our presence.

Our work includes a range of patient interactions. We could be the first doctor to screen a 14-year-old boy with scoliosis. Sometimes we provide orthotic and prosthetic fittings. Other times, in conjunction with our American suppliers, we provide braces to those who would otherwise further suffer. We offer guidance on physical therapy and even assist in diagnostic imaging, MRI and CT.

Dominican CHildren 2014 Shah FoundationOur work is not only to meet, screen and treat new patients but also to set up systems and train others to provide similar care while we are at our Princeton Brain and Spine campuses in America. Early in the Medical Mission's existence, we made the decision to help in the longest lasting, most impactful way possible. We aim to touch the lives of many in the Bonao region directly and ensure that care continues when we are not in the Dominican Republic.

Work of this magnitude can not be undertaken by a single organization. We have fantastic peers in the Cigar Family Foundation, The Dominican Foundation and the The Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral. The Cigar Family Foundation is an organization with 10 years of service that provides a school for nearly 500 students and a health facility for the neighboring villages. Without their support, these resources would otherwise not be available to the people of Bonao.

Dominican Back Brace Shah FoundationThe Dominican Foundation, an American based non-profit with 20 years of service, focuses on awareness and funding in support of The Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral's initiatives. The Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral has a 30 year track record as the primary non-profit organization in the Dominican Republic with the initiative of fighting poverty and impacting the lives of the impoverished people of the Dominican Republic.
