USA Mourns Loss of Dr. Frederick N. Meyer
Dr. Meyer earned his undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry from Westminster College in Salt Lake City and his medical degree from State University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. He completed a surgical internship at Latter Day Saints Hospital in Salt Lake City and his residency in orthopaedic surgery at University of Utah in Salt Lake City. To further his training, Dr. Meyer completed a Joseph Boyes Hand Surgery Fellowship in Los Angeles.
At the time of his death, Dr. Meyer served as professor and chair of the University of South Alabama department of orthopaedic surgery. He also served as program director for the orthopaedic surgery residency training program. Prior to his tenure at USA Dr. Meyer held teaching and leadership positions in orthopaedic surgery residency and fellowship training programs in Denver, Colo. and Phoenix, Ariz. He was well-known and highly respected by his peers for his skill as an orthopaedic hand surgeon. He earned public recognition for his academic expertise and orthopaedic knowledge, as well as his surgical and teaching skills. He also occupied leadership positions in many national orthopaedic academic societies and served as a reviewer for a variety of professional journals.
As a humanitarian, Dr. Meyer led by example. During his mission travels to Ecuador, he and the resident who accompanied him provided orthopaedic care to hundreds of poor and disadvantaged patients over the years. His desire to alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life for his fellow man was always at the forefront of his medical practice. See more...
