As of June 29, MSU's Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ECCM) operations have modified:
All walk-in patients will be evaluated. Life-threatening cases will be admitted. Cases evaluated as stable will be referred to the client’s primary care veterinarian, other facilities, or other services within the MSU Hospital, if possible. Monday–Friday, from 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., the ECCM Service will operate as a “referral only” service. However, walk-in patients with critical illness or immediately life-threatening problems will always receive care. Referring veterinarians should call 517-353-5420 prior to sending any patients to MSU. View the Hospital's full web page.
MSU College of Veterinary Medicine professor Steven Arnoczky recognized by by the Orthopaedic Research Society.
Pioneers of Innovation program recognizes scientists whose sustained research in biological, engineering, or clinical sciences have translated into novel therapies and improved patient care. Scientists in the Pioneers of Innovation program will serve as examples for the society's advocacy efforts to highlight the importance of musculoskeletal research and the need for increased research funding.
Arnoczky is a leader of translational research and considered the most recognized veterinarian in human orthopedics nationally and internationally. For more than 40 years, he has conducted orthopedic research. Arnoczky is the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine Wade O. Brinker Professor of Veterinary Surgery and Director of the Laboratory for Comparative Orthopaedic Research (LCOR).
The work of the LCOR has been honored with numerous awards from both the human and veterinary medical community. These include awards from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Association of Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Veterinary Medical Association. In 2013, Arnoczky was the first non-physician to receive the Werner Muller International Knee Prize, which recognizes lifetime contributions to the art and science of knee surgery.
Arnoczky will be recognized as a member of the Pioneers of Innovation during the Orthopaedic Research Society's 60th Annual Meeting in New Orleans on March 15, 2014.
