David Teuscher, MD, Elected Secretary of Academy Board of Councilors

ROSEMONT, Ill., March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Orthopaedic surgeon David Teuscher, MD, was elected Secretary of the Board of Councilors (BOC) of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) at the 2009 Annual Meeting at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. He will also serve on the Academy's Board of Directors.

"As Secretary, I will be one of the voices for our Board of Councilors and will work tirelessly to ensure that our states' needs are heard," stated Dr. Teuscher. "I am honored and humbled to be in this role and look forward to the challenges it may bring."

The BOC represents the grassroots of the orthopaedic profession and explores health policy, education, research, advocacy and communications functions within the Academy. Its 100-plus members are elected by state orthopaedic societies. This group serves as an advisory body to the AAOS Board of Directors and as a resource to Academy committees. In addition, the BOC manages Academy's relations with the state orthopaedic societies.

After completing an undergraduate degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Dr. Teuscher received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio. He completed his internship and residency in orthopaedics at the Brooke Army Medical Center and held academic appointments with the University of Oklahoma and Baylor University.

Dr. Teuscher was deployed to the 144th Evacuation Hospital in northern Saudi Arabia in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. He completed thirteen years of military service and was the chief of surgery at Reynolds Army Community Hospital, where he received numerous military awards, commendations and decorations. Currently, Dr. Teuscher is in private practice at the Beaumont Bone and Joint Institute in Southeast Texas and specializes in sports medicine.

An active member of the American Orthopaedic Association, the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the Texas Medical Association and Texas Orthopaedic Association (TOA), Dr. Teuscher recently served as the past president of the Jefferson County Medical Society and the TOA. He was one of the founding Board members of Texans Allied for Patient Access, the statewide coalition working for medical liability reform in Texas.

"This position will allow me to work with the BOC members to foster leadership and communication, increasing this Board's future effectiveness with the Academy, patients, policy makers and the public," added Teuscher.

Over the past ten years, Dr. Teuscher has been actively involved in public policy debates in Austin and Washington, D.C. on issues of healthcare financing, expert witness testimony, property taxes and workers compensation.

When not in the operating room or seeing patients, Dr. Teuscher enjoys family time at Lake Sam Rayburn and outdoor sports.
