The 2012 Harold M. Trusler Lectureship in Pediatric Plastic Surgery

Doctor Harold M Trusler was the first intern at Riley at IU Health when it opened in 1924. His desire to help children affected by birth defects and trauma led to his interest in reconstructive Surgery. Doctor Trusler became internationally known for his work in the Riley at IU Health Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic and became the first director of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

In honor of Doctor Trusler’s contributions to Riley at IU Health and the IU School of Medicine, the Harold M. Trusler Lectureship in Pediatric Plastic Surgery was established to contribute to the continuing medical education of our physicians, staff, residents, and medical students. On March 14, 2012, we were pleased to welcome Doctor Scott P. Bartlett as this year’s visiting lecturer. Doctor Bartlett is the Peter Randall Endowed Chair in Pediatric Plastic Surgery and Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Doctor Bartlett presented the grand rounds lecture, “Management of Hemifacial Microsomia” to Riley at IU Health physicians and staff in the hospital’s Ruth Lilly Auditorium. The rest of the day was spent with the Plastic Surgery Division and members of the Cleft and Craniofacial Team, and included additional lectures and case discussion.

The Cleft and Craniofacial Team participates in learning opportunities such as the Trusler Lectureship in Pediatric Plastic Surgery in our on-going commitment to patient care and research, as well to fulfill our mission of promoting craniofacial awareness and education to medical students and residents-in-training at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Our dedication to the continuing medical education of our physicians and staff contributes to the high level of care provided to the patients visiting the Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic at Riley at IU Health.
