OrthoAspen lecture series starts next week
OrthoAspen will play host to six community lectures starting Wednesday, Jan. 11, in Aspen Valley Hospital’s Oden Conference Center.
The first program, presented by Dr. Tom Pevny and titled “The Future of Orthopedics,” will address the role of biologics – things like platelet-rich plasma and stem cells – in orthopedic care, as well as the newest techniques in joint replacement surgery. Pevny is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who treats all types of orthopedic conditions but specializes in sports medicine and the diagnosis and treatment of the knee joint.
All presentations are free and open to the public. Some of the talks are mid-day, others in the evening. Parking is limited for the noon lectures; consider alternative transportation.
The schedule of the talks is as follows:
