Dr. Schwartz has been involved with this project since 1978. As Chief Surgeon Emeritus, Dr. Schwartz now serves as co-director, supervising and training the new corps of operating surgeons.

 

Operation Footprint is also committed to providing medical training and demonstrations to local physicians, residents-in-training, and nurses to recognize, diagnose, and treat clubfeet in children.
