The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Wayne State University will present the first Jeffrey Mast, MD, Orthopedic Trauma Visiting Lecture Conference on November 3 during the annual Detroit Trauma Symposium at the MGM Grand Detroit.
Keith Mayo, MD, one of the founding fathers of pelvic and acetabular surgery in the United States, is affiliated with Swedish Medical Center-First Hill in Seattle, Washington. He attended medical school and did his internship at the University of Washington, where he met and trained with Sigvard Hansen. In 1983, he undertook a fellowship with Dr. Reinhold Ganz in Switzerland and Dr. Emile Letournel in France. He was present at the first periacetabular osteotomy or Bernese osteotomy as it was known, and at the first acetabular surgery course in 1984 taught by Dr. Letournel.
Dr. Mayo returned to Harborview Hospital and Washington State University in 1984, where he held a trauma practice and became one of the first American surgeons to perform acetabular and pelvic surgery. He was one of four surgeons who formed the “Bande de Letournel” who traveled the world teaching the techniques of acetabular surgery. From 1995 to 2001 he joined Robert Teitge, MD, and Jeff Mast, MD, at Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University, where they established one of the leading orthopedic practices and fellowships in the United States.
His more than 30-year career has encompassed all aspects of hip and pelvic care, including complex trauma, joint replacement, and a progressive approach to hip preservation. He has performed more than 900 periacetabular osteotomies for hip dysplasia. He has a long career in surgeon training and clinical research. He has lectured and taught widely in North America and around the world. He has been a leader in the AO foundation, teaching surgeons, fellows and residents in pelvic/acetabular surgery, fracture surgery, hip preservation and deformity correction.
Dr. Mayo will present two lectures, “Evolution of Hip Preservation Surgery” at 7 a.m. for orthopedic surgery residents, fellows, faculty and staff, and “Pelvic Fracture Management” at 8:30 a.m. for all trauma symposium attendees. Faculty, residents, fellows, and staff are welcome to attend both conferences. The event is in-person only. When you arrive at the MGM Grand Detroit, say you’re part of the DMC Orthopedic Program working with Dr. Vaidya to attend at no cost.
The conference is named after Dr. Mast, co-author of “Planning and Reduction Techniques in Fracture Surgery,” the study of which is essential to the training of the modern orthopedic trauma surgeon. A 1967 graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine, he died in 2019.
