The DMC Sports Medicine program hosts the annual symposium to provide orthopaedic and sports medicine physicians, as well as students, fellows, residents, physical therapists and athletic trainers an opportunity to come together and share best practices. Objectives include current trends in the diagnosis and management of complex orthopaedic injuries, including non-surgical and surgical options, research and evidence-based review.
“This symposium is the culmination of our academic year and we look forward to this annual celebration of innovation in health care for sports injuries,” said DMC Sports Medicine President Dr. Stephen Lemos. “Attendees hear about the most cutting-edge advancements from the best in the business—this year including well-renowned clinical and academic leader, Dr. Christopher Harner, current president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and team physician for the Pittsburgh Penguins. There is no other event in this area like this for this growing field and we hope to surpass our 185 in attendance last year.”
