11/12/2015 – The non-profit group, Because We Care Foundation (BWCF), is currently on its fourth annual trip to Quito, Ecuador to provide total knee replacements to people without financial resources for treatment. The organization was founded and lead by Tucson Orthopaedic Institute providers, Luis Piedrahita, MD and Lori Bryant, PT. Tucson Ortho physicians and staff, along with colleagues from Tucson Medical Center (TMC), donate their time and talent to provide these services to folks that would otherwise go without care.
This year, Luis Piedrahita, M.D., Tucson Ortho physician, Murray Robertson, M.D., BWCF President, and Russell Cohen, M.D., BWCF Board Member, will be traveling from Nov. 6th – Nov. 14th performing knee replacement surgeries to local residents.
