32nd Annual James Buchanan Memorial Lecture

June 18, 7:45 am to 2:15 pm

The James Buchanan Memorial Lecture is a continuing education service of Penn State College of Medicine that will take place June 18, 2021, as an internet live course.

The Buchanan Lecture was established in 1990 to honor the memory of James Robert “Buck” Buchanan, MD. Buck had achieved the rank of associate professor in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and became an internationally respected investigator in calcium endocrinology and metabolic bone disease by the time his short career ended.

Dr. Buchanan was a graduate of Swarthmore College and The College of Medicine of the University of Maryland. After completing his orthopaedic residency at Penn State, he joined the orthopaedic faculty.

His active clinical practice combined general orthopaedics and hand surgery. In the laboratory, he applied an interest in vitamin D metabolism to the problem of postmenopausal osteoporosis. His pioneering work in this field earned him several research grants and invited lectureships throughout this country and abroad.

Buck was a true renaissance man. Interest in any subject seemed to lead inevitably to expertise. He was simultaneously a clinician, a teacher, an authority on the world’s finest restaurants, a wine connoisseur, a professional-level pianist, a brilliant wit and, to those who knew him, a valued husband, father and friend.

This program is designed for physicians, PhDs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and residents.

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss information on historical revision ACL reconstruction outcomes.
  • Describe predictors for revision ACL reconstruction outcomes.
  • List the results of different graft choices for revision ACL reconstruction.
