UW Orthopaedics welcomes the traveling JOA/AOA fellows for July Grand Rounds!

The University of Washington Department of Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine hosted fellows from the Japanese Orthopedic Association (JOA) for our July Grand Rounds as part of the AOA Japanese Traveling Fellowship program.
