Purpose/Overview

The Buchanan Lecture was established in 1990 to honor the memory of James Robert Buchanan, MD (Buck). 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. 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 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.

Audience

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

Overall Objectives

Cite historical sociopolitical limitations of African Americans in the field of orthopaedic medicine and approaches to correcting them.

Identify the more common orthopaedic conditions seen and treated by pediatric orthopaedic surgeons.

Discuss the role of genetics in some of the pediatric orthopaedic conditions, specifically scoliosis spinal deformities.

In 1964, he became the first African American to graduate from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine. He began his residency at Boston Naval Hospital and completed it at the combined Harvard University Orthopaedic Program.

Dr. Crawford was Director of Orthopaedic Surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for 29 years and was awarded endowed chairs in Pediatric Orthopaedics and Spinal Surgery, and the Crawford Spine Center was dedicated in his name. He has lectured and/or performed surgery in 41 countries and trained 54 international fellows in Pediatric Orthopaedics and Spine Surgery. Specializing in scoliosis, he is considered an authority on video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery and Neurofibromatosis in children. A prolific author, he has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles, more than 63 chapters and six books. He was cited as one of the top 10 educators in the first 100 Years of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (only surgeon) and the country’s best doctors since 1996.

He is currently an assistant in jazz history at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and a professor emeritus in Pediatrics and Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. In 2019, he initiated the Black Men in Medicine Cincinnati (MMIMC) to mentor, assist and sustain the graduation of undergraduate medical students of color.
