Remembering Dr. Stanley Frileck

July 14, 2020


We are sad to share that Dr. Stanley Frileck, a renowned reconstructive surgeon and an Operation USA Board Member since the mid 1980s, passed away this week.


Dr. Frileck led medical missions for Operation USA to Vietnam, Cambodia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and had earlier served in Vietnam in the mid-1960s as a Canadian physician attached to CARE/Canada. He provided Operation USA with wise counsel as a longtime member of our Managing Board.

We are forever grateful for Dr. Frileck’s friendship and guidance to generations of our staff.

Our hearts are with all Dr. Frileck’s friends and family during this difficult time.
