At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, we are committed to advancing the field of regenerative medicine. To that extent we are engaged in ongoing research, publications, and education. Each year, the Centeno-Schultz Clinic accepts highly qualified applicants into our one-year fellowship program. Our teaching does not end there! Last weekend Drs. Schultz and Hyzy were the lead instructors at the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation Wrist/Elbow/Ankle course.
What Is the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation?
The Interventional Orthopedics Foundation (IOF) is a nonprofit organization founded on the mission of developing and advancing the medical subspecialty of interventional orthopedic medicine. Click here to watch a video that explains what interventional orthopedics is and to understand its potential.
The IOF was the first nonprofit dedicated solely to interventional orthopedics. It utilizes a stepwise approach where physicians advance from level 1 to level 2 and ultimately to level 3 after mastering both the written material and demonstrating competency in ultrasound and X-ray procedures.
The IOF Wrist/Elbow/Ankle Course
During the course, 40-plus physicians from across the nation spent two full days learning. Material covered included physical examination, anatomy, ultrasound scanning techniques, and proper identification of injured structures. Utilizing cadavers, physicians were then taught how to safely inject the targeted structures.
Dr. Matthew Hyzy (pictured above), who completed our fellowship program in 2017 and authored peer-review publications, has taught at all the IOF courses this year in addition to successfully opening the new Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Lone Tree, Colorado. He is soon to be a new father! Congratulations, Matthew, and great job!
