Arthrex® Welcomes Mark Ferguson, MD, as Director of Medical Education, Asia-Pacific (APAC) Region
Please join us in welcoming Mark Ferguson, MD, to the Arthrex Medical Education Team! We are excited to announce Dr. Ferguson will be assuming the role of Director of Medical Education, Asia-Pacific (APAC) Region. Dr. Ferguson will be responsible for directing all Arthrex Medical Education programs and events throughout the APAC Region, with special focus on providing surgical skills training at the Arthrex ArthroLab in Singapore.
Dr. Ferguson has worked closely with the Arthrex Medical Education and Product Management Teams since 1997. Through the years, we have enjoyed an outstanding working relationship strengthened by our mutual commitment to helping surgeons treat their patients better. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Ferguson has traveled the world instructing orthopaedic surgeons, which has earned him an outstanding reputation as a highly-respected authority in sports medicine and minimally invasive orthopaedics.
Dr. Ferguson obtained his medical degree from the University of Stellenbosch before completing his orthopaedic residency at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. Following his residency, he completed a sports medicine fellowship under the direction of Dr. Clive Noble.
After completing his training, Dr. Ferguson traveled to the U.S. to gain additional experience at some of the country’s most recognized orthopaedic institutions: the Hospital for Special Surgery, Southern California Orthopedic Institute and Salt Lake City Hospital. In 1994, Dr. Ferguson returned to South Africa with a new clinic concept designed to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to sports injury management. With the assistance of Dr. Clive Noble and Evan Speechly, physiotherapist, Dr. Ferguson founded the Centre for Sports Medicine in Johannesburg and, until his recent departure, served as a principal surgeon.
Throughout his career, Dr. Ferguson has treated patient athletes at amateur, national and international levels. He has always been at the forefront of providing the most advanced, innovative therapies for his patients. Dr. Ferguson was one of the first surgeons outside the U.S. to incorporate the Surgical Outcomes System™ (SOS™) global registry into his practice, representing his commitment to patient-reported outcomes research and quality assurance.
Dr. Ferguson will be relocating to Singapore this April.
