About Grace Anatomy

In the fall of 2006 a team of international surgeons arrived for training. Although work previous to this had seen a doctor or two coming for short trips, this team had set some significant goals for their training. The results of this trip are still bearing fruit. Those surgeons have now held conferences to teach other surgeons from around their region how to improve their surgical outcomes, and they were invited to speak at a world conference held in Spain just a few years after returning home. After the disaster that caused the offices to be packed up, work slowed down as Diana Underwood began working full time seeing individual patients. While the web page was unmaintained for several years, work with doctors did not go completely dormant, and Diana was able to help publish a book on nursing informatics and teach at a local university. Now the opportunity to be of service to doctors and nurses in other countries, is once again a possibility. It is with great joy that we are able to put time and effort into a new office and fresh interest from the community.

Grace Anatomy, Inc. is a charitable and educational non profit organization, licensed in the state of New York. Its purpose is to guide, aid and assist individuals and medical providers to enhance health and reduce stigma from physical conditions such as incontinence and birth defects and/or their associated psychological conditions, through research, imparting relevant information, sharing of resources, experiences and ideas among people who have or who treat these conditions.

As many of you know in 2011 the office of Grace Anatomy was packed up and has only been recently unpacked. Despite only being 2 years old, the building was declared unsafe after storms. The office was hastily packed, Diana's mother was treated in the hospital, and then all family members were relocated.
