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 45th 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.
