Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship Register

Date/Time: April 06, 2018, 8:00 AM

Throughout the decades, the Brandon Carrell Visiting Professorship has served as the avenue for staff and alumni to come together to discuss the latest advancements in pediatric orthopedics. As we mark the 40th anniversary, the legacy of this program continues to have one theme in common – family. This year is special and we hope to have former fellows, both near and far, join us to learn, educate and celebrate together.

We are particularly pleased to welcome former fellow Peter Newton, M.D., as our visiting professor, to share his expertise in pediatric orthopedics and spinal deformity.

Peter Newton, M.D., is chief of the division of Orthopedics & Scoliosis at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego and a clinical professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine. He primarily treats scoliosis and other spinal conditions, such as vertebral fractures.

Newton will be presenting on "Tethering Update," "Registries to Drive Quality Improvement," and "What is 3D teaching us about AIS"

In honor of the 40th anniversary, several new features of the meeting include:
  • All sessions will be moderated by former fellows.
  • A panel discussion of cases by former fellows.
  • A POSNA-sponsored spine tutorial to occur Wednesday evening and Thursday morning prior to the meeting.
  • Optional afternoon activities on Thursday.
  • The Friday night dinner will be held at the exclusive Hotel Zaza.
