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.

All 2018 surgeries will take place December 3-9, 2018, at participating hospitals across the United States

Please check with us again in March-April 2018 regarding the 2018 program. Updates will be posted on this page.


  • 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.
