May 2000 AAOS Report

Session planned on physically challenged orthopaedists

Physically challenged orthopaedic surgeons are the subject of a symposium being planned by the editors of Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (CORR). The editors are seeking names of practicing orthopaedic surgeons who daily must overcome physical impairments and limitations to meet the demands of their profession. The symposium will be similar in scope to one published in CORR in May 1999 entitled "Issues of Minorities in Medicine and Orthopaedics." If you have information that might be helpful in putting together such a symposium, please contact either Stuart Green, MD, deputy editor, at (562) 430-3561 (e-mail, or Liebe S. Diamond, MD, guest editor, at (410) you.
