Dr. Powell and Dr. Stetson presented on Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections, respectively, to physical therapists from an array of local facilities. Communication between all members of a patient’s health team regarding exciting medical advances is imperative in providing the best possible care
Dr. Powell, Dr. Stetson and Dr. Pietro Tonino from Loyola Chicago taught an Instructional Course Lecture on “Volunteerism in Your Orthopedic Practice” at the 33rd annual Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) meeting May 1 – 3 in Hollywood, Florida.
The course enabled fellow orthopedics surgeons to gain skills necessary to make a difference both in their local communities and overseas. Dr. Stetson spoke about his non-profit Operation Arthroscopy while Dr. Powell shared his experience establishing the MusiCares Medical Network which provides free care to musicians who do not have health insurance.
Volunteer Saturday is a branch of Operation Arthroscopy that provides orthopedic and arthroscopic surgical care to patients who are unable to afford such procedures. On Saturday, April 12th, Dr. Stetson and his team at Glendale Endoscopy and Surgery Center volunteered their time, knowledge and equipment to perform two arthroscopic surgeries. Pictured here is Monrovia High School star football player and running back Darione Jones. Hope to see you back out on the field doing what you love, Darione!
A special thank you goes out to all of the volunteers as well as the companies who kindly donated supplies, including Smith & Nephew. Volunteer Saturday was featured in The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s current issue of Sports Medicine Update in an article written by our pre-medical intern Nicole Goldhaber.
