Operationwalk.Org | Reaching All Corners Of The World Changing Lives
Joint replacement surgeries allow patients to go back to work, help provide for their families, and have a richer quality of life. They can enable a grandmother to spend quality time with her grandchildren, a father to put a roof over his family’s head, or a mother to stand and hold her child.
OpWalk works alongside local medical staff for a common goal: to help restore the basic function of walking to those who cannot.
Many patients in lesser-developed countries have no access to fund costly operations. Often times there are few trained
surgeons and/or access to implants and other medical devices. OpWalk Carolinas is changing that.
OpWalk provides free surgical treatments for patients in Honduras, restoring the gift of walking.
OpWalk prioritizes rehabilitation training, removing the barrier that often affects patients in rural and remote areas.
OpWalk educates in-country orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals on the most advanced treatments and surgical techniques for diseases of the hip and knee joints.
OpWalk leaves the unused medical supplies, walkers, crutches, etc. for the community and local hospital.
Our Mission is to help restore the basic function of walking to those who cannot.LEARN MORE
