Health Care Providers Gather in Frisco to Learn from Hospital Experts

Over the weekend, Scottish Rite Hospital hosted the Pediatric Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Symposium (POSMS) at the Frisco campus. In its first year, POSMS is a combination of two medical conferences – Pediatric Orthopedics Education Series and the Sports Medicine for the Young Athlete. The one-day meeting welcomed over 110 health care specialists from around the community including pediatricians, advance practice providers, athletic trainers, physical therapists and other medical professionals. Attendees learned the latest in evaluation and treatment of pediatric orthopedic and sports medicine conditions through lectures and hands-on breakout sessions.

Several of the hospital’s staff presented throughout the day. Topics included:
  • Developmental dysplasia of the hip
  • Acute knee injuries in young athletes
  • Hip conditions in young athletes
  • Myths of sports-related concussions
  • Rheumatology 
  • Scoliosis screening
  • Hot topics in sports medicine treatments
  • Return to play and testing in the movement science lab
  • Ethical implications in fracture management
  • Safety of popular diet and supplement trends
Here is some of the positive feedback we have received so far:
