(PRLEAP.COM) March 1, 2017 – Louisville, KY – Louisville orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician Dr. Stacie Grossfeld of Orthopaedic Specialists PLLC collaborated with U of L medical school residents Drs. Steve Brown and Brent Bohlig to help facilitate their poster submissions to the 2017 American Medical Society for Sports Medicine Annual Meeting. The poster submissions were based on real-life case studies with two of Dr. Grossfeld’s patients.

This year’s Annual Meeting held by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine is being held in San Diego, CA. The two day session, which runs through the weekend of May 12th, is the 26th annual meeting held by the AMSSM. This year’s theme focuses on Medicine in Motion which applies directly to sports medicine – a focal point for both resident doctors and practicing physicians.

Dr. Grossfeld, a double board certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine physician with a private medical practice in Louisville, Kentucky, enjoyed the opportunity to serve as mentor and adviser to Dr. Bohlig and Dr. Brown during their research and

work on the poster submissions accepted at the 2017 AMSSM meetings.

Abstracts are carefully selected through a very strict peer review process. The fact that this research was chosen among many qualified submissions underscores the fact that perhaps contrary to popular belief, even in private practice settings there are patients with interesting and unusual pathology that is noteworthy enough to be presented at a national meeting. Describing her involvement, Dr. Grossfeld explains: “I especially enjoyed this unique opportunity to work with medical residents in multiple medical fields.”

Poster Submissions for the 2017 AMSSM by U of L Medical Residents

Dr. Brent Bohlig is currently completing his residency through the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He is focusing on working in a family-centered family practice serving families and the elderly. Dr. Bohlig’s 2017 abstract submission focuses on proximal leg pain with activity in the avid distance runner.

In his submission, Dr. Bohlig found that his 63-year-old patient who is an avid long distance runner started to experience pain during training. After cutting back on her training regimen and seeing no resolve in the sharp pain in her left anterior superior iliac spine, the patient sought medical attention. Dr. Bohlig, after many tests and examinations, determined that the patient had a stress fracture in her iliac crest which is incredibly rare in the field of Sports Medicine. Dr. Stacie Grossfeld and colleague, Dr. Jennifer Thomas, assisted Dr. Bohlig on his case, examinations, and diagnoses.
