Dr. Swann is a believer in giving back to those less fortunate and Operation Walk helps him contribute to that mission. Operation Walk is a yearly trip that Dr. Swann takes to San Salvador to perform surgery on those in need of hip and knee replacements that cannot afford the surgery.
Joint surgeries performed by Operation Walk Denver replace damaged, rough surfaces of the diseased joint with artificial, fluid, durable implants. Typically, these surgeries restore normal joint function and patients recover rapidly. Most patients are up and walking again in only a couple of days.
Successful hip and knee replacements provide liberation from pain while restoring both motion and function. As such, these operations are among the most cost-effective medical procedures performed. They dramatically relieve suffering while returning our patients to active, productive lives.
