Raul Caceres, MD
Ambassador to Bolivia & Latin America
Dr. Raul Caceres is an active member of KRF and the Ambassador to Bolivia & Latin America. Following his training in Surgery, and Plastic Surgery, he did a fellowship in Burn Care at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a member of the International Society of Burn Injuries and a Fellow of the International College of Surgeons. Born in Oruro, Bolivia where there is a great need for burn care of indigent children, Dr. Caceres and his family made possible the construction of a burn unit similar to the ones in the US. For the past 5 years, he has been traveling there to treat burns, sequelae and keloid scars. Because keloid scars are prevalent in patients of Spanish ethnicity, Dr. Caceres has a great interest in this ongoing research. Dr. Caceres is actively working on establishing the groundwork to study the natural history of keloid disorder in Latin America.
