Surgery on Sunday Louisville

Surgery on Sunday Louisville

Surgery on Sunday Louisville, Inc., (SOSL) is a nonprofit organization based in Louisville, KY, that provides free outpatient surgical and endoscopic care to income-eligible members of the community who are uninsured or underinsured. The program was founded in 2013 by a group of passionate medical professionals and members of the Louisville community. It is modeled in part after Surgery on Sunday, Inc., which is based in Lexington, KY, and has been serving Kentucky residents since 2005.

Since August 2013, SOSL has received more than 480 referrals from 26 partner medical homes as far as 300 miles from Louisville. Patients have been treated at 15 surgical events, which were held at eight different health care facilities and staffed by hundreds of medical and lay volunteers, including 40 physicians. In July 2016, SOSL held its first monthly outpatient clinic for surgical consultations and postoperative care, which has greatly increased access to surgical care for this vulnerable population.

In order to provide the highest quality care to its patients, SOSL relies on the generosity of the Louisville community to support the organization. To inquire about volunteering with SOSL, please send an inquiry to
