About Us

Pediatric Orthopedic Project, Inc. (POP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with orthopedic deformities in the developing world through surgical mission trips and the education of local medical staff.

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 94 children have been corrected in four years; 34 during our four missions and 60 by the hands of the Dominican surgeons, utilizing the techniques learned during our mission trips. One of our organization's number one goal is the education of the local doctors and medical staff.
