SIGN gives the injured poor access to fracture surgery by donating orthopaedic education and implant systems to surgeons in developing countries.
WE IMPLANT HOPE
We developed an innovative implant system for treating patients in low-resource hospitals. This system can be used without expensive x-ray imaging or electricity.
WE EMPOWER SURGEONS
We build sustainable orthopaedic capacity in low- and middle-income countries by educating local surgeons to care for and treat patients in their home communities.
WE RESTORE LIVES
We provide healing to the injured poor. SIGN Surgery enables people with severely broken bones to walk within one week of surgery.
We are climbing a new mountain
"Treating long bone fractures in developing countries is like climbing a mountain.
Since SIGN Fracture Care started in 1999, we have been taking small steps and making constant improvements. Now, we have reached the peak. We have largely solved the problem of how to treat those injuries. But reaching the peak of the mountain revealed more mountains to climb.
We are still learning and improving as we take on these new challenges.”
