About Organizer
The concept of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association was evolved from a conversation that was held between Ramon Gustilo, M.D., Edwin G. Bovill, Jr., M.D. and Michael Chapman, M.D., January 31, 1977. At that time, Dr. Gustilo was paying a visit to San Francisco General Hospital. These three individuals were having lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant across from the hospital.

At that meeting they discussed the problems of working as full time academic traumatologists in a city hospital environment. The individuals felt that the unique challenge of trying to make an underfunded city hospital work, while meeting teaching responsibilities, had unique problems and a loose association of university-affiliated city-county hospital trauma association formed. This became the Orthopaedic Trauma Center Study Group. (OTCSG).

Membership was determined by personal invitation by Dr. Ramon Gustilo and the first-member hospitals included: Los Angeles County Hospital, J. Paul Harvey, M.D., chief; San Francisco General Hospital, Edwin G. Bovill, M.D., chief; Harborview Medical Center, Sigvard (Ted) Hanson, Jr., M.D., chief; Denver General Hospital, Renner Johnston, M.D; Cook County Hospital, Chicago, Illinois, Arsen Pankovich, M.D., chief; and Boston City Hospital, David Segal, M.D., chief.

In 1978, Parkland Hospital, Dallas, Texas; Maryland Shock-Trauma, Baltimore, Maryland, Bruce Browner, chief; and Montefiore Hospital Medical Center with Edward T. Havermann, M.D., and Michael C. Distefano, M.D. joined.
