Operation Walk USA 2012 to Provide Free Knee, Hip Replacements Across the Country
Date:12/7/2012

said Richard Conroy, a 2011 Operation Walk USA participant from New York.  Since the surgery, "I look forward to going back to work, and golfing again – things that had been too painful for me to enjoy for many years."

The large number of orthopaedic surgeons and medical staff who volunteer their time and expertise each year, at participating hospitals throughout the U.S., "is really a testament to what a rewarding program this is, and what it does for everyone involved," said Lawrence D. Dorr, MD, the founder of Operation Walk (international), and an Operation Walk USA participant. "The ultimate service is unconditional giving of knowledge and skills. This is why we all chose medicine."

Device manufacturers Biomet, DePuy, MAKO Surgical, Smith & Nephew, Stryker, Total Joint Orthopedics (TJO), Inc. and Zimmer donated the hip and knee implants for Operation Walk USA 2012 patients.  Ortech Data, Inc. is providing a complimentary data system for OpWalkUSA patients.  Ortech will provide this data to the national arthroplasty registry, the American Joint Replacement Registry.
