Meet our Board President

Luis Piedrahita, MD - President

Michael Baltazar,

Chief Financial Officer

Meet Luis Piedrahita, MD.  He has been helping the poor in Ecuador for 14 years.  For the first 10 years of his charitable work, he traveled with CAMTA, a medical mission charity based out of Canada.  Each year, he traveled with this group to Hospital Un Canto A La Vida, located in the south part of Quito, Ecuador.  A few years ago, he became aware of the need they have for total knee implants.  He decided that it was time to create a new group of medical practitioners that would specialize in providing the surgeries and immediate follow up care and therapy for patients in need of total knee replacements.  He put together a team, and the first year, 9 people traveled to Quito as the first team based out of Tucson, Arizona.  Since then, several additional trips have been made, and many more people have donated their time and skills to help the poor in Ecuador.
