Operation Walk Utah: Free knee and hip replacements for those in need

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) Salt Lake Regional Medical center donated time and resources to provide hip and knee replacements for those in need. 

Operation Walk Utah is part of a nationwide program to get people back on their feet. 

Orthopedic surgeons volunteered all day to give those who are mostly self-employed, and do not have the insurance coverage they need to cover these essential joint replacements. 

5 candidates underwent surgery on Saturday. The candidates were chosen based on the severity of their conditions and the immediate need for surgical treatment.
