PFF traveling fellows Sheanna Maine (Australia) and Mauro Nunez (Costa Rica) have been busy traveling to University of Minnesota with Drs Arendt and Tompkins; Hospital for Special Surgery with Drs Strickland, Shubin Stein, Green, Gomoll, and Fulkerson; Johns Hopkins with Drs Cosgarea and Tanaka; and here, with Dr Laurie Hiemstra in Calgary, Canada. Dr Hiemstra is hosting the next International Patellofemoral Study Group meeting next September in Banff, Canada.
The Patellofemoral Foundation held its annual board meeting at the recent AAOS in New Orleans on March 9, 2018. Oceana Grill hosted the event which occurs prior to the annual luncheon and serves to acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of PFF Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. This year the award was presented to Dr Robert Teitge of Detroit, Michigan.
The Board continues to focus on education related specifically on diagnostic and treatment options for patellofemoral patients. Ample time was devoted to developing an effective, comprehensive, and high quality online education series. The task is supported with the excellent volunteer support of several members of the International Patellofemoral Study Group (IPSG) that include Drs. Beth Shubin Stein (NYC), Seth Sherman (Columbia, MO), Jackie Munch (Portland, OR), and Adam Yanke (Chicago).
