“Imagine being debilitated by severe joint pain but not having the means or access to the surgery you need. That’s the reality for many people all across the country and here in Northeast Florida.” This is why St. Vincent’s HealthCare and Southeast Orthopedic Specialists’ surgeons Dr. Duffy, Dr. Heekin, and Dr. Lincoln partnered up with Operation Walk USA to provide free hip and knee replacement surgeries to those who could not afford surgery and would otherwise not have access to this type of care. On December 2nd, 8 patients started on their journey to mobility restoration. To learn more about Operation Walk USA and the amazing efforts of these physicians, please play the below video.
