Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship

Date/Time: June 20, 2024, 8:00 AM

Throughout the decades, the Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship has served as the avenue for staff and alumni to come together to discuss the latest advancements in pediatric orthopedics. As we mark the 46th anniversary, the legacy of this program continues to have one theme in common – family. This year is special and we hope to have former fellows, both near and far, join us to learn, educate and celebrate together.

We are pleased to welcome pediatric orthopedic surgeon-scientist, Jonathan Schoenecker M.D., Ph.D., as our visiting professor, to share his expertise in pediatric orthopaedic hip and lower extremity conditions, trauma and infection and spinal deformity.
Jonathan Schoenecker M.D., Ph.D., is associate professor and Jeffrey Mast Chair of Orthopaedic Hip and Trauma Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He is an orthopaedic surgeon-scientist dedicated to caring for children with orthopaedic hip and lower extremity conditions, trauma and infection, educating future surgeon-scientists, and conducting high impact translational research. The overarching theme of his clinical and basic science research program is to determine the biological mechanisms by which bone develops and musculoskeletal tissue responds to and recovers from tissue injury.

  1. The biology of fracture healing and what that may teach us about spinal fusion
  2. Slipped capital femoral epiphysis: our evolving understanding of its pathogenesis and the approach to treatment acutely and for residual deformity
  3. The links between major trauma and severe infection that may help to decrease mortality in our severely ill/injured patients
  4. Developmental dysplasia of the hip: the biology and biomechanics that make developing cartilage “do what it’s supposed to” and how that influences his approach to residual dysplasia and even Perthes disease
