What Patients are Listening to: Operation Walk Chicago

A recent humanitarian trip to Brazil by Operation Walk Chicago was featured on CBS Chicago/WBBM Newsradio with an interview by founder and AAHKS member, S. David Stulberg, MD. The group of 50 volunteers conducted 60 hip replacements on patients in a wide age and disability range. “Brazilian hospitals and health clinics are devoting so much of their resources to fight Zika, that non-life threatening health issues aren’t getting much attention,” said Dr. Stulberg. Listen to the report.
