2014 Sports Medicine Faculty Forum
hosted nearly 200 orthopaedic surgeons from around the world for the 2014 Faculty Forum,
a three-day medical education event in Naples in January. Faculty surgeons in attendance
represented 37 U.S. states and 15 different countries, and included team
physicians for a variety of top professional and collegiate sports teams such
as: New York Yankees, LA Lakers, Detroit Lions, Pittsburgh Steelers, Phoenix
Suns, Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, University of
Missouri Athletic Department and the 2014 U.S. Olympic Men's Ice Hockey Team.
Faculty are surgeons who have received in-depth, hands-on training on Arthrex products and surgical techniques in order to instruct other surgeons in the hundreds of medical education courses held at Arthrex labs and other venues around the world throughout the year. During the annual Faculty Forum event, surgeons learn about the latest innovations for improving patient care and participate in live surgical demonstrations and discussions on Arthrex's advances in orthopaedics, led by Arthrex faculty, product management and the medical education team.
