Presenter

This program is presented by Penn State College of Medicine’s Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation.

Overview

James Robert “Buck” Buchanan, MD, was a graduate of Swarthmore College and The College of Medicine of the University of Maryland. After completing his orthopaedic residency 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.

The Buchanan Lecture was established in 1990 to honor his memory. 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.

Audience

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

Objectives

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the statistics regarding gender disparities in orthopaedic surgery compared to other surgical specialties.
  • Identify three examples of implicit bias in orthopaedic surgery.
  • Identify one structural and one individual way to improve inclusiveness in orthopaedic surgery.

Kristy Weber, MD

Kristy Weber, MD, is the Abramson Family Professor in Sarcoma Care Excellence in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.

She is originally from St. Louis, Mo., and attended college at the University of Missouri-Columbia and medical school at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Weber completed her orthopaedic residency training at the University of Iowa and followed that with a two-year research/clinical fellowship in orthopaedic oncology at the Mayo Clinic. She joined the faculty at University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, where she developed a large clinical practice in orthopaedic oncology and developed a basic science research program related to cancer metastasis.

Dr. Weber was recruited to Johns Hopkins in 2003 as chief of the Division of Orthopaedic Oncology and director of the Sarcoma Program, and was promoted to professor in 2009. She received the Kappa Delta national orthopaedic research award for this work in 2006.

She has served on the boards of directors of many national orthopaedic and cancer organizations, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), American Orthopaedic Association (AOA), Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) and the Connective Tissue Oncology Society. She spent four years as chair of the AAOS Council on Research and Quality, where she oversaw initiatives related to clinical practice guidelines, evidence-based medicine, appropriate use criteria, patient safety, biomedical engineering, biological implants and the development of orthopaedic clinician-scientists. She has been President of the Musculoskeletal Tumor Society and the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society (RJOS), Secretary of the Orthopaedic Research Society and Critical Issues Chair on the AOA Executive Committee.

Dr. Weber is currently the first female president of the AAOS (2019). She was recruited to the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 to serve as Vice Chair of Faculty Affairs in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and director of the Sarcoma Program in the Abramson Cancer Center. She was selected for the Penn Academy of Master Clinicians in 2017 and received the inaugural Duncan van Dusen Professionalism Award for Faculty in 2019.

A cornerstone of the Penn Sarcoma Program is the collaborative scientific research focused on developing new targets for the treatment of sarcoma across Penn Medicine, Penn Veterinary Medicine and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
