Inaugural Marybeth Ezaki/Peter Carter Visiting Professorship in Hand Surgery Hosted at Scottish Rite Hospital

Scottish Rite Hospital is hosting the inaugural Marybeth Ezaki/Peter Carter Visiting Professorship in Hand Surgery, October 20 and 21. It was established to honor Marybeth Ezaki, M.D. and Peter Carter, M.D., both world-renowned pediatric orthopedic hand surgeons. This two-day conference includes presentations and lectures from the visiting professor, as well as hospital staff and former trainees on the latest research and treatments for the pediatric upper extremity patient.

Ezaki served as the director of hand services and the Charles E. Seay, Jr. Hand Center during her time at Scottish Rite Hospital. She celebrated her retirement in 2015, however she continues as a consultant on the hand team. Carter was a key member to the hospital’s hand team as an inventor and researcher to provide the best care to his young patients. Although he retired in 2007, Carter continues to be a strong influence through the hospital’s fellowship program.

Director of the Center for Excellence in Hand Disorders Scott Oishi, M.D., F.A.C.S. is excited about this educational course and the opportunity to learn from various medical professionals from around the country. “We are delighted to host a conference specific to the treatment of pediatric hand differences,” says Oishi. “Ezaki and Carter contributed tremendously to our hand program here at the hospital. We look forward to the success of this first meeting, and those in the years to come, to continue our mission of cultivating collaboration, research and education to better patient care.”  

The hospital is honored to host this year’s visiting professor, Stéhpane Guéro, M.D. Guéro currently works at the Institut Français de la Main in Paris and specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is a member of several medical societies and has been published in well-known orthopedic journals.

The Marybeth Ezaki/Peter Carter Visiting Professorship is another element to the hospital’s continued efforts to excel in patient care, research and education. It is a privilege to honor two world-renowned hand surgeons through this conference to enhance our mission of providing the best possible care to children, both here and around the world.
