Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On June 3, 2016 we had a memorable Resident Graduation Dinner and celebrated the graduation of Dr. Phil Collis, Dr. Tom Falls, Dr. Drew Harston, and Dr. Nathan Polley. Dr. Collis will be going on to do a Sports Medicine fellowship in Orlando; Dr. Falls a fellowship in Deformity Correction at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York; Dr. Harston will be doing a Foot and Ankle fellowship at Duke; and Dr. Polley will be going into private practice in Owensboro, Kentucky. We look forward to following their careers in their chosen specialties and communities.
We have had a recent hit parade of visiting professors. Dr. Stuart Weinstein spoke on May 13, 2016 about "Current Concepts in the Treatment of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis"; Dr. Ray Gustilo, who gave the Colbert Lectureship on May 20, 2016, discussed "The Axis Knee System – A Solution to Mechanical Axis Alignment and Femoral Rotation in TKA"; Dr. Jim Kellam, who was the Research Day Visiting Professor on June 3, 2016 also spoke on "The Evolution of Orthopaedic Care in the Multiply Injured Patient”; and Dr. Jim Beaty gave the O.J. Hurt, MD Lectureship on June 10, 2016 on "Pediatric Elbow Fractures – Treatment and Complications."
We have four outstanding incoming residents starting on July 1, 2016: Dr. James Baker, Dr. Jonathon Lindner, and Dr. William Polio from the University of Louisville; and Dr. Rashad Usmani from Indiana University.
Meanwhile, we continue to make progress towards
our vision of a robust department with a strong
clinical enterprise, multiple endowed professorship
and divisions, and broad regional outreach and
