This special campaign honors the late Dr. Jorge O. Galante, a founding partner of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, a pioneer in the field of joint replacement and a valued mentor to generations of total hip and knee replacement surgeons. Dr. Galante was also a long-time member of the OREF Board and served as OREF President.
