Throughout the year, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery hosts several events that contribute to our mission to education, research, innovation, and patient care. In June, the department hosts the Garceau-Wray Orthopaedic Lectures, with a visiting professor and presentations from each of the PGY-4 Orthopaedic Residents, as well as presentations by the Adult Reconstruction, Hand, Spine, Sports, and Trauma fellows.
In November, the department hosts the Richard E. Lindseth Pediatric Orthopaedic Lectureship with a visiting professor and presentations from Pediatric Orthopaedists in the community and the region.
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery began in 1948 with the appointment of Dr. George J. Garceau as Chairman. Dr. Garceau guided the department through 1966 when Dr. James B. Wray was appointed the full-time Professor and Chairman of the Department. This course is intended for orthopaedic surgeons, residents and orthopaedic allied health professionals. This lecture series brings the most recent advances in the field of orthopaedic surgery by allowing experts, community physicians and researchers to come together to address a variety of orthopaedic topics in the area of diagnosis and treatment for hip, spine, shoulder, knee, pediatrics, trauma, foot and ankle disorders.
