In Honor of Gary G. Poehling, MD

Professor Gary G. Poehling, Long-Time 
Editor-in-Chief of Arthroscopy: The
Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery,

Our friend and ISAKOS Past President (1997-99),
Gary Poehling, has retired as Editor–in-Chief of Arthroscopy: The
Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery
after a long and very
successful career. Gary has gained lots of experience and wisdom during his
42 years as an orthopaedic surgeon and been academically very successful
with many scientific publications. 

Gary was born and raised in La Crosse, Wisconsin,
USA. He received his Bachelor's degree in Biology in 1964 and his M.D.
degree from Marquette University in Wisconsin in 1968. Dr. Poehling's
internship and residency were completed at Duke University Medical Center.
When serving in Japan for the United States Air Force, Gary had the
opportunity to train with the founding fathers of arthroscopy. He joined
the faculty at Bowman Gray School of Medicine at Wake Forest University in
1976 and was appointed Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in
1989. In 1989, Gary obtained a certificate of added qualification--surgery
of the hand. 

Gary's main interest has been in the development
of new arthroscopy techniques and surgical instrumentation as well as
broadening the development of minimally invasive surgery, including the
hip, wrist, elbow and shoulder. He has also served on a design team for the
development of a unicompartmental knee prosthesis. Most recently, he has
worked on the development of tissue engineering, including a
tissue-engineered anterior cruciate ligament. Gary is considered to be one
of the leading experts in arthroscopy.

Gary has been very active academically with 142
scientific publications. He has been involved in several outcome studies
such as evaluating techniques of high tibial osteotomy and postsurgical
outcomes of patients with ACL injury. He also has an interest in minimally
invasive surgery in the treatment of distal radial fractures and traumatic
wrist and elbow disorders. Gary has more recently been involved in research
for transplantation of articular cartilage. He has also assisted in the
development of computer software programs to track arthroscopic surgical
procedures. These programs are the foundation of a nationwide database of
information pertaining to arthroscopic surgery. 

Gary has served since 1991 as the Editor-in-Chief
The Journal of Arthroscopic and Related Surgery
. This
journal was founded by the
Association of North Americ
. When ISAKOS was founded 1995, Arthroscopy
was established as our official journal and made available to all members.
Together with his team, Gary has developed Arthroscopy to be one of
the leading journals in the world in our field. They have made the journal
much more diversified and have been open to include many new areas. Today
this journal is a must for most orthopaedic surgeons around the

Gary played a huge role in the foundation
in 1995 and during the following years when
ISAKOS struggled to find its form and heart, which required lots of work
and discussion. He served as the
of ISAKOS from 1997 to 1999. At the end of his
presidency, Gary organized the ISAKOS Biennial Congress in Washington DC in
1999, which set the stage for future events. He has been instrumental in
the success of ISAKOS following his term as President, serving as co-chair
for the ISAKOS Strategic Planning committee with Ken DeHaven. They
initiated discussions of the
and vision
for ISAKOS and assisted in the growth of our
young society. Gary Poehling has been very instrumental in making ISAKOS a
recognized international society with more than 4,000 members and a very
good economy and structure. In appreciation of his great work, Gary
Poehling was made
of ISAKOS in 2007. 

Gary is an outstanding educator and mentor. We are
grateful for his friendship and support. We also appreciate all the good
times we have spent with Gary and his wonderful wife of many years, Sandy.
Gary has always been strongly supported by his wife and large family. 

We would like to thank Gary, not only for his
extraordinary work in developing our discipline, but also for continuing to
be such a strong supporter of ISAKOS. Gary must also be congratulated for
his great work in developing Arthroscopy: The Journal of Arthroscopic
and Related Surgery
to be what it is today. We all owe Gary Poehling
our gratitude for his vision and support. 

Thank you, Gary! 

The ISAKOS Presidential Line and our Members
