The Foundation for Orthopedic Research and Education (FORE), Current Solutions in Shoulder and Elbow Surgery is online and available. Shoulder and elbow surgeon Mark Frankle organized this superb meeting with the help of Tampa based FORE staff Mindy Gregory and Derek Pupello. The 71 presentations cover a wide range of important topics.
David Dines and Buddy Savoie are among the faculty who participated in expanded discussions. Both faculty interviews demonstrate two very experienced surgeons discussing how they think about complex shoulder and elbow problems. The G9MD.com faculty interview is a forum that allows surgeons sufficient time to explain more of the steps behind their successful operations. We can also learn more about the thought processes that allow these key opinion leaders to reason their way through a complex problem.
The first meeting session is Management of Proximal Humerus Fractures and Joe Zuckerman does his usual outstanding job as session monitor. Rockwood’s presentation is classic Rockwood. The Elbow Solutions section is superb but what would you expect with Bernie Morrey, Joaquin Sanchez-Sotelo and Scott Steinmann? Tom Norris is the lone non-Mayo surgeon but holds his own.
Friday night is a fascinating session titled “Obama Care and the Value Driven Health Plan.” Surgeons, PhD policymakers, Industry leaders, Medical Society representatives all join in a very spirited discussion.
Shoulder arthroplasty and Reverse shoulder arthroplasty each have separate sessions as do glenohumeral instability and rotator cuff disease.
Any one of these sessions is worth a few hours of your time.
CME credits coming soon to this meeting on G9MD.com
