Trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico
Recently was in San Juan, Puerto Rico teaching surgeons about early-onset scoliosis and the use of the MAGEC system.  I had the opportunity to meet the attending pediatric orthopaedic surgeons Drs. Humberto Guzman, Pablo Marrero, Gladys Ramos, Onix Reyes, and Lissette Salgueiro.  Also in attendance was the upcoming complex spine deformity fellow at Columbia University (NY) and 6 Orthopaedic Residents from the San Juan residency program.  Extremely engaging meeting with this top-notch group.  Thanks to Benito Padilla for his hospitality.
