Bozic, a joint replacement surgeon from the University of California, Johnny Lau, a foot and ankle surgeon from Toronto, Canada, Rex Haydon, an orthopaedic oncology surgeon from the University of Chicago, Matthew T. Provencher, a shoulder and sports medicine surgeon from the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, and Heather Vallier, an orthopaedic trauma surgeon from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
