Mark Your Calendar For Comparative Orthopaedics Day

Missouri Orthopaedic Institute

Please join us for our 20th annual Comparative Orthopaedics Day on Friday, April 10, 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.
