Limb Reconstruction Meeting Brings Experts from Around the World to Dallas

Scottish Rite Hospital is honored to host the second annual Controversies in Pediatric Limb Reconstruction (CPLR). This two-day seminar brings together leaders in the field to collaborate and discuss the latest treatment techniques for pediatric patients with limb deformities, limb loss, musculoskeletal infection and severe length discrepancies. 

In conjunction with the Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Society (LLRS) and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA), the program includes lectures, panel discussions and case studies presented by hospital staff and international guests. Co-directed by pediatric orthopedic surgeon David A. Podeszwa, M.D., and researcher Mikhail Samchukov, M.D., CPLR serves as a unique opportunity to bring together experts from various backgrounds who provide care to this specific patient population.

As a leader in this specialty, the Center for Excellence in Limb Lengthening team travels the world to teach others about the devices used to treat conditions associated with limb deformities. CPLR cultivates local and international collaboration right here in Dallas, TX. 

“We are excited to host this prestigious event,” says Podeszwa. “We have the opportunity to collaborate with some of the best from around the world, right here in our hospital, to advance the care provided to these patients. CPLR gives attendees a focused and comprehensive program where they are able to learn, debate and discuss the latest treatment techniques – with the hopes that they take that knowledge and apply it at their respective institutions worldwide.”
