Operation Walk Boston 2017 - Clinical Day 4 (March 5, 2017): Surgeries and Rehabilitation Continued

We were able to finish up the weekend with an additional 10 joint replacements today. The entire staff and patients are continuing to work hard in their respective roles. Every day continues to be inspiration, particularly when observing the dedication of everyone in this mission (from medical volunteers to patients). 

Morning rounds were filled with smiles and hugs between patients and providers. Physical therapy sessions were comprised of "high-fives" and "thumbs-up". There could not be a more positive attitude from everyone involved.
