Women’s Orthopaedist Global Outreach (WOGO) – Roanoke, VA 

Mission: WOGO provides free life-altering orthopaedic surgery that eliminates debilitating arthritis and restores disabled joints so that people can reclaim their ability to care for themselves, their families and communities.

WOGO trains in-country surgeons and other healthcare professionals in specialized orthopaedic skills and technologies so they can improve the health of their patients. In 2016, WOGO performed 44 knee replacement surgeries at the Biamba Marie Mutombo Hospital at no charge to the patient.  WOGO will return to Kinshasa in 2018.
