Our good friend Dr. Lew Zirkle (http://signfracturecare.org/about/about-sign-founder/), who has been many times to the General Hospital in Port au Prince teaching the HUEH orthopedic residents, had suggested that we invite the HUEH residents to HAH for some formal teaching. We set up a four hour program that included various lectures by Dr. Ahmed Bazzi of Johns Hopkins, Drs. Hlad, Timeny, and Dr. H. Topics included pediatric elbow fractures, tendon transfers, pediatric femur fractures, calcaneus fractures, neglected clubfeet, tendon transfers about the foot, clubfoot, and supramalleolar osteotomies.
Job Timeny acted as our simultaneous translator. Our host, Dr. Francel Alexis, gave lectures on Tibia Vara, and on Introduction to the Taylor Spatial Frame, in his native Creole. At the end of the four hour lecture marathon, the 21 orthopedic residents from the Haitian University Hospital assembled with us for a proud group photo on the steps of Adventist Hospital.
