      KEYNOTE SPEAKER Robert M. Campbell, M.D.
      Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery
      Children’s Hospital of PhiladelphiaRobert M. Campbell Jr., M.D., is a pediatric orthopedist esteemed for his role in inventing the Vertical Expandable Prosthetic Titanium Rib (VEPTR). VEPTR is used to treat rare diseases of the spine and chest wall, through surgical expansion of the chest and correction of spinal deformity, without inhibiting children’s growth. The titanium rib, approved by the FDA in 2004, has been introduced in more than 30 countries and is considered the gold standard for treating fragile pediatric patients with lung-restricting deformities. He has also published extensively on the thoracic and pulmonary disability of these patients and was the first to identify the disease Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome (TIS).
