The Wayne State University Department of Orthopedic Surgery will present the first Jeffrey Mast, MD, Orthopedic Trauma Visiting Lecture on Nov. 3 during the annual Detroit Trauma Symposium at the MGM Grand Detroit.
Keith Mayo, MD, one of the founding fathers of pelvic and acetabular surgery in the United States, is affiliated with Swedish-First Hill Medical Center in Seattle, Wash. where he met and trained under Sigvard Hansen. In 1983, he did a fellowship under Dr. Reinhold Ganz of Switzerland and Dr. Emile Letournel France. He was present for the first periacetabular osteotomy or Bernese osteotomy as it is known, and the first acetabular surgery course in 1984 given by Dr. Tournel.
Dr. Mayo returned to Harborview Hospital and Washington State University in 1984, where he practiced trauma and became one of the first American surgeons to perform acetabular surgery and pelvic. He was one of four surgeons who made up the “Bande of Letournel” that traveled the world teaching acetabular surgery techniques. From 1995 to 2001 he joined Robert Teitge, MD, and Jeff Mast, MD, at the Detroit/Wayne State University Medical Center, where they established one of the first Orthopedic practices and fellowships in the United States.
His 30-plus year career has included all aspects of hip and pelvis care, including complex trauma, joint replacement and an ongoing focus on hip preservation. He has performed more than 900 peri-acetabular osteotomies for hip dysplasia. He has a long-standing involvement in physician education and medical research. He lectured and taught extensively in North America and around the world. He has been an AO foundation leader, teaching surgeons, fellows and residents in pelvic/acetabular surgery, fracture surgery, hip preservation and deformity repair.
Dr. Mayo will present two lectures, “Evolution of Hip Preservation Surgery” at 7 a.m. for Orthopedic surgery residents, fellows, faculty and staff, and “Pelvic Fracture Management” at 8:30 a.m. for everyone. those who attended the meeting of suffering. Faculty, residents, colleagues and staff are welcome to attend both presentations. The event is personal. When you arrive at the MGM Grand Detroit, mention that you are part of the DMC Orthopedic Program working with Dr. Vaidya attendance is free of charge.
The conference is called Dr. Mast, co-author of “Methods for planning and minimizing fracture surgery,” whose study is essential for the training of today’s Orthopedic Trauma surgeon. A 1967 graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine, he died in 2019.
