ABOUT US

Arthritic disease is the most common cause of disability in the United States and it 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 excruciatingly painful. Hip and knee replacement surgeries are the most cost-effective and successful of all orthopaedic procedures in eliminating pain and restoring patients to active, productive lives. Although more than 1 million hip and knee replacements are performed in the United States each year, thousands of uninsured or underinsured men and women continue to live with severe arthritic pain and immobility because they have no access to joint replacement surgery. Thus, in 2009, building on the history, spirit, and two decades of success of Operation Walk international missions, the need for an “Operation Walk USA” was identified.

Mission of Operation Walk USA

The mission of Operation Walk USA is to encourage and enable joint replacement surgeons to restore mobility and improve quality of life for uninsured and underinsured patients in the United States who suffer from disabling arthritis of the hip or knee.

Vision of Operation Walk USA

Operation Walk USA will become the leader in joint replacement care for economically disadvantaged patients in the United States.

Since 2010, Operation Walk USA has given back to our communities $18,900,000 in pro bono medical care services and helped 702 patients. (This 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.)
