Operation Walk USA is an independent medical humanitarian organization that provides free hip or knee replacement surgeries to patients in the US.

Operation Walk USA is committed to helping those in need by restoring their mobility, self dignity and productivity, thus helping them return to work and their social activities. Currently, Operation Walk USA takes place once a year, in December.  The 2014 event is scheduled for the first week of December:  December 1 through 6, 2014.

THE 2013 ANNUAL IMPACT REPORT

[2] The Coordinators’ Committee of Operation Walk (International) mobilized the initial US program, and the original 9 surgeons who overcame the logistics and malpractice concerns were: Drs. Boiardo, Dennis, Digioa, Dorr, G. Engh, Khanuja, Lombardi, Ritter, and D. Stulberg. The current organization evolved from that original courageous effort.

[3] Estimate is based on an average cost of TKA and THA in the United States (excluding the cost of donated implants); procedure costs vary greatly and are influenced by many factors.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE:
Adolph V. Lombardi, Jr., MD, FACS
