TKR and THR surgery camp 2011 at NOH

TKR and THR surgery camp 2011 at NOH

 Operation Walk Chicago, a US medical mission is going to hold a Total Hip Replacement (THR) surgery camp at NOH from November 15-22, 2011. Altogether 14 patients have been selected and confirmed by the Operation Walk team. Initially, ten THR's and  TKR's were planned but due to certain techincalities the plan was changed.

Operation Walk charges nothing from the patients and all services including prosthesis are free of cost to the patient. Dr. Victoria Brander and Dr. David Stulberg are the co-directors of this mission.

In 2010, November 31 TKR's were done succesfully by this medical mission and many needy patients benefited. TKR and THR are very costly surgical procedures and as the population of the nation is growing older , every year many more patients are needing this kind of surgery. NOH hopes to learn from this team's surgical ventures and plans to do surgeries safely and cost-effectively for its patients.
