Since 2010, Operation Walk USA has given back to our communities $13,284,000[3] in pro bono medical care services and helped 492 patients.

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.
