Pediatric Orthopedic Education Series – “Looking Back and Looking Forward”
Over the weekend, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children hosted the Pediatric Orthopedic Education Series (POES), “Looking Back and Looking Forward.” This one-day program invites local pediatricians, family practitioners, physician assistants and other medical professionals to learn from our doctors on various pediatric orthopedic topics.
Several of Scottish Rite Hospital’s doctors presented and led hands-on breakout sessions to give a well-rounded educational program. The experience provided medical professionals the opportunity to learn from the best in pediatric orthopedics. Topics included musculoskeletal infection, scoliosis, hip, hand and sports medicine injuries. During the hands-on sessions, attendees were able to watch and practice performing various techniques in splinting upper and lower extremity injuries and applying a Pavlik Harness for hip dysplasia.
Program Director of POES and Scottish Rite Hospital staff orthopedist, Amy McIntosh, M.D., saw this series as a chance to train local medical professionals about our hospital and how we treat our patients. It is a privilege that as a leader in pediatric orthopedics, we have the opportunity to educate locally to ultimately bring better care to all of the patients treated at Scottish Rite Hospital and the Dallas area.
