The Board of Directors of the Patellofemoral Foundation hosted its annual luncheon on March 9, 2018, in conjunction with this year’s AAOS in New Orleans. Oceana Grill provided a great meal and wonderful New Orleans atmosphere as the PFF awarded the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. Robert Teitge of Detroit, Michigan.

Dr. John Fulkerson, President of the PFF, thanked the many guests for their ongoing support of the Foundation’s goals and then introduced Dr. Teitge, while referencing a tremendous career that included many accomplishments that benefited the knowledge and treatment of the patellofemoral joint. Dr. Teitge delivered comments that reflected on his approach to research and use of technology in his practice.

Also in attendance at the luncheon were prior recipients of the PFF Lifetime Achievement Award, Drs. Liza Arendt and Philippe Neyret, as well as numerous representatives from corporate sponsors. One of the goals of the luncheon is to show appreciation to those companies that have consistently and significantly supported the PFF.  

Next year’s luncheon will be at the AAOS meeting in Las Vegas in March 2019.

The 2017 Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting was held in beautiful San Diego this past week. The Board of Directors of the Patellofemoral Foundation recently held our board meeting and luncheon in San Diego concurrent with the 2017 AAOS meeting.  This year we met at the Oceanaire Restaurant located a few blocks from the San Diego Convention Center.

Agenda items included updates on a number of ongoing projects and relationships with partners that include AANA, ISAKOS, and AOSSM.  The upcoming September 8-9, 2017 PFF/AANA Orthopaedic Learning Center course was discussed and significant time was given to ideas for providing residents and fellows with a focused course directed to teaching current and optimized options for treatment.

The board was grateful and fortunate that corporate donations continue to support efforts to provide education. Dr. John Fulkerson reviewed the current list of sponsors noting especially the generous DJO Global commitment to donate $250,000 over 5 years.  Continued support from Smith & Nephew, Kinamed was gratefully acknowledged as well as the first year of support from ZipLine Medical.

The board meeting was adjourned at noon and the invitation-only luncheon followed.  In attendance were leaders of PFF partner organizations including AANA President Rob Hunter, MD of Salida, CO and AOSSM President Ned Amendola, MD of Duke University.  Michael McBrayer, Sr. VP of DJO Global and Alain Tranchemontagne, Sr. VP of Smith & Nephew each took a few minutes to voice their commitment to the goals and efforts the Patellofemoral Foundation. Vineet Sarin, PhD, President of Kinamed, also attended this year’s luncheon.

Each year the PFF presents a very special award at the luncheon to honor significant contributions to patellofemoral science and treatment.  The Patellofemoral Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award this year was awarded to Vicente Sanchis-Alfonso MD PhD of Valencia, Spain.  Several previous recipients of the award, Dr. Alan Merchant and Dr. Liza Arendt, joined us for the celebration.
