Please join us for our annual Comparative Orthopaedics Day on Friday, April 16, 2021 at the Missouri Orthopaedic Institute’s Thompson Laboratory Conference Center.

Lewis Zirkle, MD will be our Littlejohn Family Keynote Speaker. Dr. Zirkle has dedicated his life to find a way to properly treat fractures in the developing world. He created the SIGN Fracture Care International Program that developed innovative implants that can be used effectively by orthopaedic surgeons in very remote areas of the world. The program has impacted more than 300,000 patients.

Due to Covid-19, only presenters, invited guests, orthopaedic residents, and orthopaedic faculty may attend in person. Others may attend virtually. Registration is free, but you must register to attend. To register, e-mail Kelly Reeves at
