POP Is A Non-profit 501c3 Organization Dedicated To Improving Pediatric Orthopedic Care In Developing Nations.
Every year we travel to the third world with a team of US medical experts (doctors, nurses, physician assistants and technologists) and perform free scoliosis (crooked back) surgeries on impoverished children. Currently, we are focusing our efforts in Santiago, Dominican Republic where a total of 122 children have been corrected in four years; 58 during our six missions and 64 by the hands of the Dominican surgeons, utilizing the techniques learned during our mission trips. One of our mission’s priorities is the education of the local doctors and medical staff.
