On our special SurgeonMasters Live Group Call this month, we went out on a limb, and changed the date and the format! We were not on the 3rd Thursday of the month, and we did a Live Video Conference instead of our usual TeleConference.
What went great? We heard an excellent presentation from Dr. David Lowenberg, Clinical Professor, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University. And, we honored brilliant master surgeon, the late George Cierny, MD!
What was shared by Dr. Lowenberg about Osteomyelitis?
- How and why antibiotic resistance can develop so rapidly
- What a biofilm is, and how that limits the effectiveness of conventional treatment methods.
- Aggressive surgical debridement and dead-space management is critical
- His highly informed perspective on other methods used still today
