How healing one doctor helped a nation get better.

Dr. Olabisi Claudius-Cole is one of only 200 doctors in the entire country of Sierra Leone. When arthritis pain prevented her from tending to her patients, the American orthopaedic community stepped in to help. Through donated surgeries and free hip and knee implants, Dr. Claudius-Cole is now back on her feet. And Sierra Leone once again has one of its most precious national treasures – an outcome that has a lot of people feeling better.
