Dr. Ferguson and her nurse, Mallory Jones, were in Las Vegas to attend the second Anterior Hip Foundation meeting that took place 4/12-14/2018. The Anterior Hip Foundation (AHF) was created 5 years ago to be the world’s foremost incubator for the anterior approach total hip arthroplasty procedure. Founded by global thought leader and anterior approach pioneer, Dr. Joel Matta of the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, the AHF is a collaborative enterprise created by orthopedic surgeons to continue improving patient care…one anterior approach total hip arthroplasty at a time.

Dr. Ferguson is a pivotal member of the AHF actively participating and doing her part to improve patient care. At the meeting she will lecture, participate in panel discussions and doing something else she loves- collaborating with other surgeons and talking all things hip. This meeting is always a reunion and a chance to catch up for Dr. Ferguson and her mentor, Dr Matta.
Dr. Byrd left for the NFL combine rechecks in Indianapolis, which took place on Friday the 13th. These rechecks provide an opportunity for teams to reevaluate players who were still recovering from injuries during the full NFL Combine in February. These athletes are anxious to show what they can do with some extra time. The draft begins on Thursday, April 26 and goes through Saturday, April 28th.

As a sports medicine physician, Dr. Byrd’s career focused on knees and shoulders long before he pioneered methods of hip arthroscopy and other types of hip preservation surgery.
Dr Byrd had to change gears from examining football players to lecturing about hip preservation. He got done with the physicals in Indianapolis and headed to Chicago. A group of international orthopaedic surgeons were gathering at the Orthopaedic Learning Center (OLC) to learn about hip arthroscopy and hip preservation strategies.
