17th Annual John S. Gould Lectureship/Scientific Program

Milwaukee, WI US
June 27, 2014

This symposium consists of a series of research endeavors undertaken by the Visiting Professor and the Residents, Fellows and Faculty of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.  The practice of orthopaedic surgery is based on established protocols and outcomes substantiated in the literature.  There is a need to encourage and facilitate ongoing research to continually strive to improve patient care.  This symposium will provide new concepts in treatment and encourage discussion on cutting edge research.

Best practices in orthopaedic surgery are based on improved patient care through increased medical knowledge, and practice based learning and improvement, all supported by sound clinical research.  These are established competencies of the ACGME and are required for board certification and MOC with the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.  These requirements are fulfilled through careful and thoughtful analysis of the literature and evidence based clinical studies.  Only then can scientific discoveries be incorporated into clinical practice and advances in patient care.

The effectiveness of this symposium will be demonstrated by increased successful outcomes in our patient care through a greater understanding of club feet, rotator cuff tear arthropathy, clavicle and humerus fractures and their repair, and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and cost-effective options for treatment.  These are just a few of the research topics to be discussed today.
