How do we put our mission FIRST?

Financial Assistance

Support families of patients in need at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics (RIAO) who do not have the financial resources to handle expenses that are not covered by insurance (initial clinical evaluations, transportation, housing costs, wheelchairs, walkers, postoperative care, etc.)

International Outreach and Mission Work

Serve patients abroad by enabling the RIAOís specialized medical staff to travel to impoverished areas around the world to provide orthopedic treatment. The Save-A-Limb Fund provides resources for one international patient per year to travel to the RIAO for treatment.


Support research to improve techniques related to limb lengthening, limb reconstruction, joint preservation and joint reconstruction.


Award one academic scholarship per year to a current or former patient who is pursuing a career in healthcare. Provide educational opportunities for orthopedic surgeons from all over the world to learn new surgical techniques and treatment methods.

Technical Improvements

Acquire specialized medical equipment that enhances treatment methods and improves patient outcomes.
