The Wayne State University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery will present the first Jeffrey Mast, M.D., Orthopaedic Trauma Visiting Lecture Conference on Nov. 3 during the annual Detroit Trauma Symposium at the MGM Grand Detroit.

Keith Mayo, M.D., one of the founding fathers of pelvic and acetabular surgery in the United States, is affiliated with Swedish Medical Center-First Hill in Seattle, Wash. He attended medical school and performed his internship at the at the University of Washington, where he met and trained under Sigvard Hansen. In 1983, he undertook a fellowship under Dr. Reinhold Ganz in Switzerland and Dr. Emile Letournel in France. He was present for the first periacetabular osteotomy or Bernese osteotomy as it became to be known, and the first acetabular surgery course in 1984 given by Dr. Letournel.

Dr. Mayo returned to Harbourview Hospital and Washington State University in 1984, where he undertook a trauma practice and became one of the first American Surgeons to perform acetabular and pelvic surgery. He was one of the four surgeons who made up the “Bande of Letournel” that traveled the world teaching the techniques of acetabular surgery. From 1995 to 2001 he joined Robert Teitge, M.D., and Jeff Mast, M.D., at the Detroit Medical Center/Wayne State University, where they established one of the premier Orthopaedic practices and fellowships in the United States.

His 30-plus-year career has encompassed all aspects of hip and pelvis care, including complex trauma, joint replacement and a progressive focus on hip preservation. He has performed more than 900 peri-acetabular osteotomies for hip dysplasia. He has a career-long involvement in surgeon education and clinical research. He has lectured and taught widely in North America and throughout 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 Orthopaedic surgery residents, fellows, faculty and staff, and “Pelvic Fracture Management” at 8:30 a.m. for all of the trauma symposium attendees. Faculty, residents, fellows and staff are welcome to attend both lectures. The event is in person only. When you arrive at the MGM Grand Detroit, mention you are part of the DMC Orthopaedic Program working with Dr. Vaidya to attend at no cost.

The lecture conference is named for Dr. Mast, co-author of “Planning and Reduction Techniques in Fracture Surgery,” the study of which is essential to the training of the modern Orthopaedic trauma surgeon. A 1967 graduate of the Wayne State University School of Medicine, he died in 2019.
