The Operation Walk Team met Sajina on their last visit to Nepal. At that time, they realized that the local hospital could not accommodate the complex surgery she required. Operation Walk has worked diligently to bring her to Chicago to receive the complex pelvic reconstruction and hip replacement she needs in order to walk normally again. This is the first time that the organization has brought a patient back to the United States for treatment.
While in Chicago, she will undergo the operation at Northwestern Memorial and then extensive inpatient rehabilitation at theRehabilitation Institute of Chicago. You can follow Sajina’s story here where we will provide updates from the Operation Walk team in Nepal, as well as mark milestones during her stay in Chicago.
