Biography: For 31 years, from January 1972 through December 2002, it was my privilege to practice orthopedic surgery in the rewarding academic environment at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
In the 10 years after graduation from our School of Medicine in 1962, I had the opportunity to receive diverse and extensive post-graduate training and experience. These experiences both broadened my outlook and reinforced my conviction that the Kansas University Medical Center offered an excellent environment to develop a rewarding academic practice, including both clinical and clinically applicable laboratory research. My expectations have been more than realized.
Similar to the times, my practice began as a general one. However, it soon became focused on pediatric problems and finally on spinal deformity conditions. Since retirement from clinical practice, I have had the opportunity to participate in the further development of the department through continued clinical research and staff recruitment and development. In addition to continuing these endeavors, I am working to further develop the Paul R. Harrington Archives in the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine.
