Operation Walk Pittsburgh is a branch of a global health campaign bringing hope to many in need of orthopaedic surgery. Led by Dr. Anthony DiGioia, Operation Walk Pittsburgh was formed in 2008.

Operation Walk was started in 1995 by Lawrence D. Dorr, M.D. in Los Angeles, CA. On a teaching trip to Russia, Dr. Dorr had the idea that one of the best ways to teach physicians was to actually demonstrate the surgery. Dr. Dorr put together a team of surgeons, internal medicine doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses, and physical therapists and planned his first Operation Walk trip to Havana, Cuba. The connection was made through a former patient and the program took its first step. The team spent eight months getting all of the implants, medications, surgical supplies and postoperative supplies ready to be transported to Havana. The first trip was a success with 45 joints operated on in a 3-day period. It was a very rewarding experience for the team, and of course, everyone was full of enthusiasm to plan the next trip. Over the next 10 years, 2 Operation Walk teams operated 6 times in Cuba, helping over 250 patients. Currently, there are 10 Operation Walk Teams throughout the US and Canada.

Mission Statement

Operation Walk is a private, not-for-profit, volunteer medical services organization that provides free surgical treatment for patients in developing countries (and occasionally in the US), that have no access to life-improving care for arthritis or other debilitating bone and joint conditions. Operation Walk also 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. This is done in conjunction with surgeries to help create a lasting contribution to patient care in developing countries.
