To accomplish this goal, our doctors support Operation Walk USA, a humanitarian effort committed to helping patients who are unable to afford joint replacement surgery receive this life-altering treatment.

Operation Walk USA

Arthritic disease of the joints can be severely debilitating and affects an estimated 20 percent of the adult population. Joint replacement surgery is often the most cost-effective and successful treatment to eliminate pain, and to restore mobility and productivity to these patients’ lives. Operation Walk USA provides aid to US citizens and permanent residents who would otherwise be unable to pay for joint replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery can be quite expensive and is often unattainable for the many under-insured or uninsured patients throughout the country. Through an immense network of volunteer physicians, nurses, and equipment providers, Operation Walk USA provides free joint replacement surgeries to individuals in need. With surgery, these patients can return to their daily lives relatively pain-free and with a restored sense of freedom.
