Operation Walk Boston 2017 - Clinical Day 5 (March 6, 2017): Final Surgical Day

Today was the last surgical day. We finished the last of our joint replacements for a grand total of 58 joint replacements performed during Op Walk Boston 2017! 

Following the final operations, we had X-ray rounds where we reviewed all of the cases from this year's trip. This was an opportunity for everyone to review the cases that had been completed over the past 5 days. Overall, everyone was proud of the work that we have done during our time in the Dominican Republic thus far. 

We look forward to seeing our patients progress with rehabilitation one last tomorrow before they are discharged.
