He is pictured standing outdoors, smiling, wearing a coat and collared shirt and glasses.Lew Schon, MD, FACS, has ben an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in disorders of the foot and ankle at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital (MUMH) in Baltimore, MD, for the last 27 years. There, he directs the Foot and Ankle Fellowship and is founder of the Orthobiologic Lab that focuses on musculoskeletal translational biology and biomedical engineering. As a faculty member of MUMH and associate professor at both Johns Hopkins and Georgetown universities, he takes an active role in training orthopaedic surgery residents.

Biomechanics, orthobiologics and clinical studies have resulted in more than 130 peer-reviewed papers and more than 80 other publications. He has received many research grants including several from the Maryland State Stem Cell Foundation and the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS). His work has earned him awards including the 2012 Johns Hopkins University Professors Award for Excellence in Teaching, AOFAS Humana Award, AOFAS Roger Mann Award, AOFAS Goldner Award, the MUMH Golden Apple Award and the 2015 JHU BME Clinical Innovator Award.

Audience

This program is designed for physicians, PhDs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and residents.

Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the anatomic components that contribute to gait function: joint, bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, vessels and nerves.
  • Evaluate the repair, reconstructive and alternatives to address dysfunction of the lower extremity.
  • Recognize the complex goals of complete limb reconstruction that result in an improvement in ambulation.

About the Buchanan Lecture

The Buchanan Lecture was established in 1990 to honor the memory of James Robert “Buck” Buchanan, MD. Buck had achieved the rank of associate professor in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and became an internationally respected investigator in calcium endocrinology and metabolic bone disease by the time his short career ended.

Dr. James “Buck” Buchanan was a graduate of Swarthmore College and The College of Medicine of the University of Maryland. After completing his orthopaedic residency here at Penn State, he joined the orthopaedic faculty.

His active clinical practice combined general orthopaedics and hand surgery. In the laboratory, he applied an interest in vitamin D metabolism to the problem of postmenopausal osteoporosis. His pioneering work in this field earned him several research grants and invited lectureships throughout this country and abroad.

Buck was a true renaissance man. Interest in any subject seemed to lead inevitably to expertise. He was simultaneously a clinician, a teacher, an authority on the world’s finest restaurants, a wine connoisseur, a professional-level pianist, a brilliant wit, and to those who knew him, a valued husband, father and friend.
