Matthew Morrey, M.D., orthopaedic surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement with UT Medicine San Antonio, is one of four physicians selected from around the world for the prestigious 2014 John N. Insall Travelling Fellowship by The Knee Society.
UT Medicine San Antonio is the clinical practice of the School of Medicine at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Dr. Morrey is one of two orthopaedic surgeons from the United States chosen for this honor. The other American doctor is from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Doctors from Japan and England round out this year’s four fellows.
The 2014 fellows will travel throughout the month of October to internationally recognized joint replacement and knee surgery centers. They will travel to Boston; Philadelphia; Rochester, Minnesota; New York; Charlotte, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis; Chicago; Denver; and London in Ontario, Canada.
During the four-week course, each fellow will work on a related project and will use his or her findings to create a report to present at selected international meetings and to be published in journals.
Dr. Morrey, who is an associate professor of medicine at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, received his medical degree from the UT Health Science Center at Houston. He completed his orthopaedic training at the Mayo Clinic with an emphasis on primary and revision adult reconstruction.
