A stand-out physician, Dr. Schwartz runs Operation Footprint, a non-profit organization that provides training, medical supplies, and reconstructive surgery to Honduran children born with major podiatric disabilities, particularly clubfeet. 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. The organization has treated several thousand children since its inception in 1976, operating in Mexicali and Tijuana, Mexico, San Miguel, El Salvador, and Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
