More than 80 Vietnamese patients, mainly children with foot deformities and disabilities, will get free surgery.
The operation will be performed by surgeons from the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society under an ongoing four-week humanitarian outreach project.
The American surgeons will also offer check-ups for over 200 other patients at clinics in Hanoi, Vinh, Thai Nguyen, and Dien Bien.
They have been working with the Orthopaedic Rehabilitation Institute, Viet Duc Hospital and local orthopaedic surgeons during the program, which will end on August 4.
They will also share knowledge and new techniques on how to care for patients.
