ROANOKE, VIRGINIA – May 8, 2018 – Women Orthopaedic Global Outreach (WOGO)recently completed their fifth medical mission trip providing free joint replacement surgeries to those in need, this time in Havana, Cuba. At the conclusion of the mission the team of female orthopaedic surgeons welcomed a new team surgeon into their ranks, Dr. Antonia Chen.


Dr. Antonia Chen is an orthopaedic surgeon at Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard Medical School where she specializes in hip and knee replacements. She graduated from Yale University and Rutgers Medical School. She continued at the University of Pittsburgh for her orthopaedic residency, and completed a fellowship in adult reconstruction at Rothman Institute/ Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She lives in Boston, and enjoys conducting orthopaedic research, teaching students/residents/fellows, and spending time with her family, friends and little dog.

“There are few women in orthopaedics, and even fewer in arthroplasty. I am so blessed to join a sisterhood of female orthopaedic surgeons in a field where we are a rare breed.  It’s been incredible operating alongside these fabulous women and changing the lives of patients with an amazing team. I look forward too many more medical mission trips with WOGO!” said Dr. Antonia Chen.

Dr. Chen joins founding WOGO surgeons Dr. Robyn Hakanson, Dr. Rinelda Horton, Dr. Amanda Marshall-Rodriguez, Dr. Mychelle Shegog and Dr. Audrey Tsao along with Dr. Kathleen Hogan who joined the team in 2014 following the team’s Tanzania Medical Mission.
