- Optional Personal Statement: I have come to recognize the clear value in multi-center collaborative study efforts/initiatives – value to the patient and family with improvements in patient care and treatments and value to the treating physician with advancements in disease understanding and opportunities for research. I have witnessed and experienced these valuable benefits as part of the International Perthes Study Group (IPSG) and would look forward to participation in a similar group looking at an equally important problem as hip dysplasia.
