Dear prospective patient, friend, or family member of a prospective patient -

Thank you for contacting Operation Walk USA.

We understand that you, or someone you know, may be in need of a free total hip or total knee joint replacement.  Our mission is to assist individuals like you.  Please note, we offer only hip and knee replacement surgeries to adult patients; at this time we do not offer any other orthopaedic procedures.

To be considered, prospective patients must be US citizens or permanent residents ("green card" holders), UNINSURED, 18 y.o. or older, and at or below 300% of the 2017 Federal Poverty Guidelines.

All surgeries will take place December 4-9, 2017, at participating hospitals across the United States. 

Please submit your information through this online registration system:



  • Historically, demand for assistance far exceeds our capabilities.  So although we encourage you to submit your information through the above link, we cannot guarantee acceptance into the program.
  • Undocumented immigrants, Medicare and Medicaid patients, and patients with insurance coverage are currently ineligible to receive assistance through Operation Walk USA.
  • Our participating sites (hospitals) are fully empowered to make the final determination whether you qualify for the program based on a number of clinical and economic criteria.
  • As we work through the process, you may not hear from us regarding your status until sometime in September-October; or even as late as November.
  • A list of participating hospitals is not yet available, but check our website for updates.
  • Due to safety and other considerations, we do not encourage, or enable, prospective patients to travel outside of their immediate area of residence (typically, farther than 1-2 hours by car).
  • While we welcome your emails, our staffing resources are extremely limited, and we are not always able to reply to routine inquiries unless we have new information to share.
  • Important updates are posted on our website, as well as on our Facebook page and on Twitter.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
