OPERATION WALK USA DECEMBER 2-7, 2013
Arthritic disease is the most common cause of disability in the United States and now affects 46 million Americans, or more than 21 percent of the adult population. The debilitating pain of end stage hip or knee degenerative disease makes even the most simple of daily tasks excruciating. Hip and knee replacement surgeries are the most cost-effective and successful of all orthopedic procedures, eliminating pain and restoring patients to active, productive lives. Unfortunately, these surgeries are expensive, and out of reach for the many of our under- or uninsured suffering neighbors.
Operation Walk USA is a non-profit medical humanitarian organization that provides free hip or knee replacement surgeries for these patients. Operation Walk USA targets patients – US citizens and permanent residents – who do not qualify for government assistance programs. Harnessing a national network of volunteer hospitals, physicians, nurses, physical therapists and others, Operation Walk USA is committed to helping those in need by restoring their mobility, self dignity, productivity, and helping them return to their social world.
Operation Walk USA is a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code.
The following companies provide free implant devices for our patients:
- Exactech, Inc.
- MAKO Surgical Corp.
- Smith & Nephew
Our orthopaedic registry is powered by Ortech Data, Inc.
On behalf of our patients and participants, we thank our corporate sponsors. Their generosity helps us restore mobility and give hope.
