Since the first Overseas Outreach Project to Vietnam in 2002, AOFAS volunteers have performed surgery on nearly 1,500 patients and evaluated more than 3,500 patients in clinics, all at no charge to the patients. A total of 60 AOFAS members from around
the world have participated in the project. Read about the 2018 Vietnam Project.
Volunteer surgeons spend 1-2 weeks in northern Vietnam and Hanoi working side-by-side with Vietnamese orthopaedic surgeons – teaching, seeing patients in the clinics, and performing surgery. Volunteers also present at the annual orthopaedic educational
conference in Hanoi and at provincial hospitals. The annual project is scheduled over a four-week period in May/June.
Applications for the 2020 trip will open in Fall 2019.
