LSUHSC’S KRAUSE APPROVED FOR MEMBERSHIP IN PRESTIGIOUS ORTHPAEDIC ASSOCIATION
New Orleans, LA – Peter C. Krause, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Orthopaedics at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine, has been approved for membership in the American Orthopaedic Association (AOA). Founded in 1887, the AOA is the oldest and most distinguished orthopaedic association in the world. It has been the parent of several major orthopaedic organizations. Membership in the AOA is achieved by those who have made a significant contribution to education, research, and the practice of orthopaedic surgery and there are currently only about 1,500 members.
"Only 4% of members of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons are invited as members by the AOA," notes Andrew King, MD, MB.ChB, FRACS, FACS, Professor and Chairman of Orthopaedics at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine, who nominated Dr. Krause.
Dr. Krause completed his undergraduate training at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude in 1990. He graduated from Stanford University School of Medicine in 1996. His interest in orthopaedic trauma developed while completing an Orthopaedic Surgery residency at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, which he finished in 2001. He spent one year in an orthopaedic trauma fellowship at Detroit Receiving Hospital and then moved to New Orleans joining the LSUHSC faculty as Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery in 2002.
Dr. Krause maintains an interest in all aspects of orthopaedic trauma care with a special interest in pelvic and acetabular fractures, complex post-traumatic reconstruction, and total hip arthroplasty.
