The 2021 Operation Walk USA week will be held in memory of Lawrence D. Dorr, MD, Founder of Operation Walk (International) and Co-Founder of Operation Walk USA.

WELCOME!


Thank you for your interest in Operation Walk USA. We are currently collecting prospective patients' information in consideration for pro bono hip and knee replacement surgeries to take place November 29-December 4, 2021. 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 (18+ y.o.) patients; at this time we do not offer any other surgical procedures; we do not treat children under the age of 18. 

To be considered, prospective patients must be:
- US citizens or legal permanent residents;
- Uninsured, and
- At or below the 300% federal poverty guidelines.

For safety and liability reasons, we do not encourage or enable prospective patients' travel to a hospital located at a distance greater than approx. a 1-2 hour car ride away from their home town.
