Starting in 2020, the AOSSM/AANA Specialty Day will debut the AANA Innovations Lecture, a brand-new, Specialty Day-exclusive lecture that celebrates and reinforces AANA’s innovative nature as well as the significant contributions its members have made to arthroscopy and related surgery over the last 40 years.
Stephen S. Burkhart, M.D., a pioneer for numerous arthroscopic shoulder and knee procedures, will be the featured lecturer for the inaugural address.
Dr. Burkhart’s notable career is highlighted by his significant achievements in the field of arthroscopy. In addition to the arthroscopic procedures he introduced, he was one of only three surgeons performing shoulder arthroscopies nationally in 1983. His leadership within AANA is vast, having served as an editorial board member for the Arthroscopy Journal, a member of the AANA Board of Directors and as the AANA President in 2002. Today, he frequently serves as a symposia speaker at the national and international level.
Save the Date! Be sure to attend the AANA Innovations Lecture at the AOSSM/AANA Specialty Day on March 28, 2020 in Orlando, Florida.
