Learn about the science of pediatric orthopedics during the latest installment of the 2022 Medical Center Lecture Series, coming to the Cultural Center Theatre at 5 p.m. Monday, March 14. Please note that unlike other lectures that usually take place on Tuesdays, this lecture takes place on Monday.
“ACL Reconstructions in Pediatrics and Mission Moments in Pediatric Orthopedics at Nicklaus Children’s’ Hospital” is the title of Monday's lecture, presented by Craig J. Spurdle, M.D., F.A.A.O.S. Dr. Spurdle is Chief of Orthopedic Surgery and Director of the Ambulatory Surgical Center at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami. He also serves as Director of Nicklaus Children’s Pediatric Specialists.
Dr. Spurdle earned his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Miami's Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital. He pursued a fellowship in pediatric orthopedic surgery and sports medicine reconstruction at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, part of Georgia's Scottish Rite Hospital.
His clinical interests include arthroscopic pediatric and adolescent sports medicine reconstruction, skeletal trauma and other congenital and acquired anomalies of the skeletal system.
“You come to work every day and you get to work with kids, what’s better than that?" Dr. Spurdle said. "It’s very rewarding”.
Nicklaus Children’s Hospital's Orthopedic Surgery department performs more than 1,500 surgical procedures and handles 34,000 outpatient visits annually, managing more than 6,000 fracture cases.
