During each convention of the American Association of Equine Practitioners, one veterinarian is chosen for the honor of giving the Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture on a topic of importance to the profession. In 2009 Larry Bramlage, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, was selected to discuss the orthopedics of the horse's fetlock joint, from disease and injury to surgical repair.
