Connally orthopaedist earns board re-certification
Connally Memorial Medical Center is pleased to announce that Edward Elmer, M.D. has been re-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS). ABOS certification entails passing not only a written examination, but also an oral examination which is based on his clinical practice here in Floresville. Thus, he has met the stringent criteria of the ABOS in his academic training as well as his clinical practice and surgical outcomes.
Dr. Elmer ranked in the 95th percentile of all applicants taking the examination. “I am very grateful that the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery has conferred this honor upon me,” Elmer stated, “and I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving patients in the caring and expert environment of Connally Memorial Medical Center.”
As a member of the ABOS, Dr. Elmer joins an elite group of distinguished orthopaedic surgeons who are active in patient care, education, and research. The ABOS was founded in 1934 as a private, voluntary, nonprofit, independent organization to serve the best interests of the public and the medical profession. These interests are achieved by establishing standards for the education of orthopaedic surgeons that are evaluated by the ABOS through examinations and practice evaluations.
After graduating cum laude from Harvard Medical School, Dr. Elmer completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He also completed a pediatric orthopaedic fellowship from the Children’s Hospital and Health Center in San Diego. Since 1992, Dr. Elmer has been in solo practice in Pleasanton and Floresville.
