Stetson Powell Doctors Host 2nd Annual West Coast Sports Medicine Fellows Lab


The 2nd Annual West Coast Sports Medicine Fellows Lab took place from March 1-2, 2013. Twenty-one fellows from Kerlan Jobe, USC, UCLA, SCOI, San Diego, Stanford and SMOG performed arthroscopic and open procedures in cadaver labs, creating an opportunity for fellows to learn from an all-star faculty including surgeons Steve Snyder, Jim Tibone, Jim Esch, Neal ElAttrache, Tom Knapp, Reza Omid, Chris Lee, William Stetson and Scott Powell. Lectures among the faculty discussed shoulder instability and rotator cuff repair products, as well as the keys to building a successful private practice. The lab meetings were organized by Dr. Powell and sponsored by Dr. Stetson’s non-profit organization Operation Arthroscopy, Smith and Nephew, RTI Biologics, Bledsoe Brace Systems and Arthrosurface.
