He has authored 300 scientific articles and book chapters and has conducted research through the Dorr Arthritis Institute since1994.Operation Walk was born in 1996 after Dr. Dorr had fulfilled many international teaching invitations and decided he could be more effective by teaching in-country physicians and medical staffs while performing hip and knee surgeries on-site. Since then Dr. Dorr developed a protocol for planning and implementing these complex surgical missions in developing countries that others now follow successfully.Dr. Dorr is a founding member and past president of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, which now has 2,500 members and is the largest organization of hip and knee replacement surgeons. He also founded and was past president of the Knee Society and the Hip Society, and is the first surgeon to be president of all three of the field’s professional entities.In the mid-2000s Dr. Dorr began a novel writing career. His first novel, Die Once Live Twice, is a story about the transformation of medicine between the Civil War and World War II, culminating with penicillin usage. A sequel, Die Once Live Forever, was published in 2017.Dr. Dorr graduated from Cornell College in his home state of Iowa and played both high school and college football. At the University of Iowa, while in medical school on a full tuition academic scholarship, he played rugby. After medical school he traveled to Los Angeles for an internship at Los Angeles County Hospital and was then in the Navy as a doctor for three years.

St J’stone 1 – 0 Kilmarnock

first_imgCraig Conway’s cross was only cleared into the path of the onrushing right-back on the edge of the area and the Millwall loanee beautifully arrowed a half-volley past Danny Rogers.It was the 21-year-old’s first goal for the club and the only shot on target during an arduous encounter played amidst difficult foggy conditions.The hosts edged proceedings and their dominant back three, led excellently by captain Jason Kerr, limited Killie to barely any clear-cut chances.- Advertisement – Zander Clark rises to clear a Kilmarnock chance in the second halfImage:Zander Clark rises to clear a Kilmarnock chance in the second half The visitors’ best opportunity fell after 24 minutes when Kirk Broadfoot headed off the bar. Chris Burke’s pinpoint corner arrived perfectly for the experienced Broadfoot to meet with a powerful header that beat Zander Clark but the ball rebounded off the bar to safety. Danny McNamara illuminated a gloomy encounter with a brilliant strike to hand St Johnstone a crucial 1-0 win over against Kilmarnock.The lacklustre Saints had only scored one goal at home all season, against St Mirren on August 29, until McNamara struck the winner in the 70th minute.- Advertisement – Killie believed they should have been awarded a penalty just after half-time when McNamara appeared to handle in the box.After blocking Nicke Kabamba’s header, McNamara threw himself to meet Greg Kiltie’s shot and it appeared to strike his arm but after slight hesitation referee Gavin Duncan waved away the protestations.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – As the game progressed, the fog descended on McDiarmid Park which made visibility incredibly difficult.Killie threw on Eamonn Brophy in an attempt to salvage a draw but the hosts defended resolutely.The Saints made the better start and after a Kilmarnock mistake, the impressive Conway fired an ambitious effort over the bar from 25 yards.St Johnstone continued to press forward and after McNamara burst down the right flank, David Wotherspoon sent an off-balanced strike wildly over in the 10th minute.Both sides played with extreme caution during the first half although Broadfoot was twice fortunate to escape being caught in possession when attempting unnecessary skill in dangerous areas.Set-pieces appeared to be the best avenue for either team to score all evening. Conway found Stevie May with a near-post corner after 34 minutes but the diminutive striker’s acrobatic flick only found the side-netting.Callum Davidson will be delighted as St Johnstone made it three unbeaten in the Premiership as they moved level with Kilmarnock in the table on 14 points.What’s next?St Johnstone host Dundee United in the Scottish League Cup on Tuesday; Kick-off at 7.45pm.Kilmarnock are also in that competition next up, visiting Clyde at the same time.last_img read more
