Who Are We?

A charitable organisation dedicated to improving the standard of orthopaedic, trauma and reconstructive surgery in developing countries.

Our Mission

WOC UK has particular associations with a number of projects in specific developing countries. WOC UK send experienced orthopaedic surgeons to such projects, where their teaching expertise can be of benefit. In addition to didactic teaching, they also provide surgical instruction in the operating theatre.

Each project thus requires qualified short-term volunteer surgeons to fill these posts, whilst some further vacancies exist for British orthopaedic surgical trainees which provide experience and approved training in orthopaedics in a developing country situation.

“it is clear that all of us who give aid to the less fortunate countries should plan our contribution in such a way as to make the indigenous population self-sufficient,
and therefore do ourselves out of a job!”

— J.N. ‘Ginger’ Wilson, 1998. Past President of WOC UK.
