Scottish Rite Hospital Hosts the 39th Annual Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship

Scottish Rite Hospital is hosting the 39th Annual Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship, June 23-24. This two-day educational course is a culmination of our fellow training program and highlights the research projects of our fellows as well as our orthopedic residents. Our orthopedic trainees are required to complete at least one research project with our medical staff and research team during their rotation at Scottish Rite Hospital. This year’s program is highlighting clinical research studies in the areas of spine, hip, trauma, lower limb deformity, musculoskeletal infection (MSI), sports, and psychology.

Our visiting professor this year is Deborah Eastwood, M.B., Ch.B., F.R.C.S (London). Dr. Eastwood is a consultant orthopedic surgeon and the orthopedic director of the Motor Learning Laboratory at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, and consultant orthopedic surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. She has been a member of the Board of Directors for the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (EPOS) from 2009 through 2015 and President of EPOS 2013-2014. This year, co-director of the Center for Excellence in Limb Lengthening, David A. Podeszwa, M.D., is the Brandon Carrell conference program director. He is excited for the fellows and residents to present their research. “I look forward to this course each year because it is a great opportunity for our fellows and other staff within the hospital to share their current research and learn from one another,” says Podeszwa. “It is an honor to have Dr. Eastwood at our institution so our staff may learn from her expertise.”

The Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship is another component of the hospital’s mission of patient care, education and research. We continue to strive for excellence and be a leader in pediatric orthopedics by allowing staff to learn from medical professionals from around the world, as well as each other. The course advances our knowledge of pediatric orthopedics, which will improve the care of our patients.
