On Sept 27th, the University of Pittsburgh-Titusville 2018 PTA cohort attended an orthopedic seminar in Meadville, hosted and presented by Dr. Molli, D.O. a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon, whose practice is Meadville-based with Orthopedic Associates of Meadville. Dr. Molli is an adult reconstructive/total joint orthopaedic surgeon and he specializes in hip and knee replacement as well as complex hip and knee revision joint replacement surgery. He presents nationally and internationally on hip/knee replacements teaching the innovative techniques he implements. An additional unique aspect of Dr. Molli’s care is that he provides in-depth patient education prior to surgery. Therefore, he hosts detailed seminars on his procedures, welcoming prospective patients and families.  Our students have also had the privilege of being part of this experience.  Dr. Molli’s enthusiasm, knowledge, expertise, and process are outstanding and therefore the UPT PTA students attended one of his unique seminars where they could learn more about these orthopedic approaches.  We are grateful for opportunities like these in our own backyard!
