Welcome to Duke Orthopaedics

Chair’s Corner

Welcome to the written version of my weekly announcement, mirroring the updates previously shared every Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. Occasionally, I'll include a video message, but not for this week.

Tomorrow is National Doctor's Day, celebrated on the anniversary of Dr. Crawford W. Long’s first surgery under anesthesia in Jefferson, Georgia. His work balanced the science and art of medicine and led to a significant advance in care.

We are excited to welcome our incoming orthopaedic residents. They are exceptional applicants with backgrounds and interests that will enrich our program.

Welcome to the new Chair's Corner! As you requested in our recent survey, I will share departmental updates and videos each week in this column.
