LLRS Quarterly Newsletter Winter 2023

Update from the LLRS President

Dr. Stephen Quinnan

It has been an incredible year for our Society and we have much to be grateful for this holiday

season. The membership is strong and growing and we are financially on solid ground. We can

also report that ownership of Journal of Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction (JLLR) is now official and the new editorial board is being formed.

In addition to reflecting on the year that has past, we look forward to a successful year to come.

We start out with two exciting upcoming events after the New Year with the 2nd Annual ELER

course in January and Specialty Day at the AAOS in February. After that, remember to submit

abstracts for the Annual Meeting and mark your calendar for July 12 & 13 in Hollywood, FL.

We are looking forward to an epic meeting with educational and entertainment opportunities for


Happy Holidays to all!
