GOING GLOBAL: OPERATION WALK PROVIDES RELIEF AT HOME AND ABROAD
UNMC ORTHOPAEDIC SURGEONS GIVE BACK WITH THE GIFT OF MOBILITY
In November of 2011, the Operation
Walk – Nebraska team embarked for
Antigua, Guatemala. This was the group’s
2nd annual mission trip to Guatemala to
give back by giving the gift of mobility to
impoverished patients who otherwise may
never have walked again.
The UNMC team, along with other groups
from North America and a group from
London, Ontario, Canada, performed 73
joint replacement surgeries on 63 patients.
Dr. Curtis Hartman and an interpreter, make
rounds during a recent Operation Walk trip to
Antigua, Guatemala, in November of 2011. This
was the team’s 2nd annual Operation Walk
mission trip.
“The trip went extremely well,” said Dr.
Kevin Garvin, chair of orthopaedic surgery.
“We performed a case that would have
been challenging even in the states. The
resiliency and toughness of the patients
we encounter in Guatemala continues to
impress us all.”
The high pain tolerance and tireless work
ethic of the Guatemalan patients seem
to be a reflection of the everyday living
conditions to which they have learned to
adapt. For example, the team took only
100 Vicodin (a narcotic pain medication)
for the entire trip.
“We didn’t use them all,” said Dr. Garvin.
“The same number of patients in the U.S.
would have required thousands of narcotic
pills. It’s really a testament to the strength
of the patients we’ve encountered on these
missions.”
The patients helped through Operation
Walk are often disabled from debilitating
arthritis affecting their joints and causing
severe pain. Resources are scarce in many
impoverished countries and there are no
means to help those who are suffering
from this terrible disease. Without help
from Operation Walk, they would likely
remain immobile and in crippling pain the
rest of their lives.

Raising Awareness of the Rising Cost of Musculoskeletal Disease
DR. BEAU KONIGSBERG RECENTLY TRAVELED TO CAPITOL HILL TO ADVOCATE FOR INCREASED FUNDING
FROM CONGRESS TO SUPPORT THE FUTURE OF MUSCULOSKELETAL CARE IN OUR NATION

Message from the chair
Giving back.
In November the Operation Walk – Nebraska team embarked on a 2nd annual mission
to Antigua, Guatemala to give relief to impoverished patients who are often disabled
from pain and debilitating arthritis. Together, Team Nebraska and Team Canada
performed 73 joint replacement surgeries on 63 patients, for a very successful mission!
Shortly after returning home, we were also honored to be able to represent the state of
Nebraska as a participating location in the first annual Operation Walk USA mission,
held in December. A collaborative effort between The Hip Society, The Knee Society and
the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS), Operation Walk USA
consisted of 60 surgeons in 18 states at 26 hospitals who joined forces to perform
charitable joint replacements on 85 patients right here in America!

In February, we kicked off the new year with the annual meetings of the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) in
San Francisco. Each year our department works hard to be able to have strong
representation at these national meetings, and this year was no exception, with faculty
and residents participating in 2 symposiums, 3 specialty day symposiums, 3 instructional
course lectures, 1 paper (moderator), 1 podium presentation and 3 poster presentations.
Also during the AAOS meeting, we held our annual Nebraska Orthopaedic Alumni
Reception at the Marines’ Memorial Club, with alumni and guests gathering together to
catch up on the past year’s activities. We truly enjoy this event each year, which allows us
to catch up with fellow alumni and friends, and helps us maintain a strong Nebraska
bond throughout our orthopaedic community. Thanks for joining us!
We hope you will also join us in June to help us celebrate the upcoming graduates of the
Class of 2012 as they move onto the next phase of their orthopaedic careers. Mark your
calendars and plan to attend our annual graduation ceremonies on June 15th and 16th.
See you then!

Legendary Leadership
You have probably heard us talk about our activities with Operation Walk a quite a bit
lately. That’s because we think it means a lot. Over the past two years of being involved
with this mission, we have come to appreciate that this is a humbling and gratifying way
to bring the year to a close and give thanks for the opportunities we have been afforded,
by giving back to those who are suffering greatly and are not able to help themselves.
We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated to this worthy
cause and give you an update on last year’s activities.
REMEMBERING
DR. JOHN F. CONNOLLY
From Dr. Paul Duwelius
(Class of 1987)
“The great thing about orthopaedics is your ability to give back
what your teachers gave to you in
so many ways. The UNMC program
is truly a great program that
has continued to grow under the
influence of Dr. John Connolly and
the core values he taught.”
• Giveback.
John F. Connolly Resident Fund Update
CONTINUING THE LEGACY OF A LEGEND.
The department has established a goal to raise $150,000, to be donated to the John
F. Connolly Resident Excellence Fund in honor of the late Dr. John Connolly (chair of
Orthopaedic Surgery 1974-1990). The purpose of this fund is to provide financial
support for resident projects during their years in training, in an effort to continue the
legacy of resident research and education that Dr. Connolly fostered. With your help,
the John F. Connolly Resident Excellence Fund will soon be a reality!
PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A PLEDGE TO THE JOHN F. CONNOLLY RESIDENT
EXCELLENCE FUND IN SUPPORT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPAEDIC
SURGERY AND REHABILITATION.
Every year, we are working hard to conceive new and innovative ways to educate and
inspire our residents. In order to achieve this goal, we need the help of department
alumni and friends within the community who share our vision of making Nebraska
the place for orthopaedic residency education.

OPERATION WALK continued from pg 1
“The goal of our team is to help these individuals
regain their quality of life, and to allow them
to function normally and without pain,” said
Dr. Curtis Hartman, assistant professor of
orthopaedic surgery and Operation Walk team
surgeon. “The immense gratitude the Guatemalan
patients have shown us is rewarding beyond
words.”
Since Operation Walk was founded in 1994
by Lawrence Dorr, M.D., the international
organization has improved the lives and mobility
of over 6000 patients in developing countries.
Building on the success of this global effort,
orthopaedic surgeons around the nation joined
together in December of 2011 to make the first
annual Operation Walk USA a reality.
Read more on page 5 about this successful
mission.
Operation Walk USA 2011
and Dr. Larry Dorr featured on
NBC’s Nightly News “Making a
Difference”
On January 31, 2012, Dr. Larry Dorr,
founder of Operation Walk, was featured
on the “Making a Difference” segment of
NBC’s Nightly News. Dr. Nancy Snyderman
interviewed Dr. Dorr regarding Operation
Walk USA 2011 and the difference that was
recently made in many American’s lives. Read
an excerpt from the program’s transcript
below:
“Our Making a Difference report tonight is
about a doctor helping people get back on
their feet again. They’re in constant pain,
but like many Americans they can’t afford to
pay for the care they need. That’s where one
doctor and his doctor friends come in. . .
For years, Operation Walk, the charity he
founded, has provided free surgeries for
thousands of vulnerable people around the
globe. Now with tough economic times in
this country, Dr. Dorr is bringing his charity
home. During a recent two-day span, he
and 60 other orthopedic surgeons operated
on 85 uninsured patients, replacing their
bad hips and knees.”

News website or by visiting the News &
Events page of our website at www.unmc.

Operation Walk is a private, not-for-profit,
volunteer medical services organization that
provides free surgical treatment for patients in
developing countries, who otherwise have no
access to life-improving care for arthritis or other
debilitating bone and joint conditions.

OPERATION WALK BUILDS ON GLOBAL SUCCESS TO BRING FREE ORTHOPAEDIC CARE TO USA
Recognizing the growing need to provide the same
level of orthopaedic care to impoverished patients
in our own country, on December 2-3, 2011, 60
surgeons in 18 states at 26 hospitals joined forces
to perform charitable joint replacements on 85
patients, making the first annual Operation Walk
USA mission a huge success! Operation Walk USA
is a collaborative effort between The Hip Society,
The Knee Society and the American Association of
Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS).
In Nebraska, Dr. Beau Konigsberg, assistant
professor of orthopaedic surgery, participated
in the mission and completed a free joint
replacement on Charles Jones of Omaha at the
The Nebraska Medical Center on December 2nd.
Prior to being diagnosed with avascular necrosis,
Jones was a chef and a minister, both of which
required spending a lot of time on his feet. In
May of 2010 his pain became unbearable and
warranted a trip to the emergency room. That
eventually led him to be seen by Dr. Konigsberg
who confirmed that Jones had avascular necrosis
in his left hip and would need a hip replacement.
Jones, who had been on medical leave without
pay since his diagnosis, was financially unable to
afford hip replacement surgery. When he received
the call that Dr. Konigsberg had chosen him to be
a patient in Operation Walk USA, he felt hopeful
that he would return to work and his previous
quality of life. We are happy to report that he has
now returned to work full time!

patient.

Senator Mike Johanns and Dr. Beau Konigsberg discuss the need for increased federal funding to support musculoskeletal
research at the AAOS Research Capitol Hill Days, March 14-15, 2012.
ADVOCATE continued from pg 1
first annual Operation Walk U.S.A. event (December
2011), Dr. Beau Konigsberg, assistant professor in the
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation,
was called upon by the AAOS to be a representative
during this vital address to Congress to build on its
current support of musculoskeletal research by making a
commitment to provide sustained long-term funding.
In March, Dr. Konigsberg traveled to Washington, D.C.,
and had the opportunity to meet several influential
leaders and committee members including members
of the AAOS leadership, President John Tongue, Vice
President Josh Jacobs, and members of the AAOS
Research Development Committee; NIAMS; NIH; Senator
Johanns; staff from Congressman Lee Terry’s office; and
two Colorado congressmen’s staff.
“This was a great opportunity to learn more about the
federal funding process for musculoskeletal research
through the NIH and how our academy is working to
maintain and support it,” said Dr. Konigsberg.
According to the AAOS, more than 1 in 4 Americans has
a musculoskeletal condition requiring medical attention.
Treatment of these conditions has an enormous fiscal
impact on the American health care system each year.

Dr. Todd Miner (orthopaedic surgeon), Senator Mike Johanns, Dr. Beau Konigsberg (orthopaedic surgeon), and
Mr. Bob Wentzell (patient) at the AAOS Research Capitol Hill Days, March 14-15, 2012. Drs. Miner and Konigsberg were
participating surgeons in Operation Walk U.S.A. 2011. Mr. Wentzell received a pro bono knee replacement surgery by Dr.
Miner as part of that mission.
In recent years there has been a significant rise in the
number of musculoskeletal conditions and the cost to
treat those conditions, however funding for orthopaedic
research has grown at a much slower rate.
It is projected that in the next 10-20 years, the aging
population will increase significantly, further escalating

orthopaedic surgeons, are able to offer to our patients
in years to come. We hope that you will support them in
their efforts in any way that you are able.
