Operation Walk Utah Observes the Season of Giving by Providing No-cost Total Hip and Knee Replacements to Seven Utah Patients
Date:12/6/2013

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

On Saturday, December 7, 2013, Operation Walk Utah will team up with the Center for Precision Joint Replacement at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center and the Hofmann Arthritis Institute to perform seven total hip and knee replacement surgeries—three hips and four knees—at no cost to the selected patients. The seven patients were ultimately selected by the Operation Walk Utah committee based on the severity of their condition and the immediate need for surgical treatment.

Aaron Hofmann, M.D., board-certified orthopedic surgeon and director of the Center for Precision Joint Replacement at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center and the Hofmann Arthritis Institute, along with Jeremy McCandless, M.D., and Trevor Magee, M.D., will perform the surgeries on Saturday. All expenses of treatment, including surgery, hospitalization, and pre and post-operative care, will be covered by Operation Walk Utah. All joint replacement implants are donated by Zimmer Inc. in Warsaw, Indiana, MAKO Surgical Corp. in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and Total Joint Orthopedics in Salt Lake City.

Audra Porter is one of the seven patients selected to receive a total knee replacement this week. Porter is a 32-year-old woman from Sandy, Utah. During a waterskiing accident, Porter suffered a multi-ligament right knee injury and shattered her tibial plateau. She received surgical treatment to repair her knee and underwent years of physical therapy. Four years after the accident, Porter experienced debilitating knee pain, which led to further immobility. She met with Dr. Hofmann and his team, learning she needed a total knee replacement. Based on her situation, Dr. Hofmann selected Porter to receive a no-cost joint replacement this weekend. Porter is hopeful for a pain-free and active future after her surgery.

“It’s always a treat during the holiday season to do this event,” said Dr. Magee. “ The entire
