overview Dr. James Aronson graduated from Princeton University, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Duke University Orthopaedics and then completed a Fellowship in Pediatric Orthopaedics at Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children. Following traveling fellowships in Italy, Switzerland, and Germany in 1985, Dr. Aronson performed the first leg lengthening procedure in North America using the Ilizarov method. Today, he is recognized worldwide as the leading researcher in this distraction osteogenesis technique of bone lengthening which was first developed in Russia. Over the past 30 years, Dr. Aronson has used the Ilizarov method in over 500 patients to salvage limbs (arms and legs) that were shortened from congenital deformity or trauma and to reconstruct complex angular deformities, osteomyelitis and non-unions in patients as young as 22 months and older than 50 who would otherwise face amputation or life-long handicaps. He joined UAMS in 1984 and for the past 20 years has been Chief of Pediatric Orthopaedics at Arkansas Children's Hospital. He currently serves as a editor for Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma and Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research. As the 1995 recipient of the Arthur H. Huene Memorial Award presented by the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society, Dr. Aronson was only the fifth person ever honored by his colleagues in North America for making significant research contributions to the field of pediatric orthopaedics. In 2003, he received the prestigious Nicolas Andry Award, in Paris, for his research involving fibroblast growth factor to reverse deficits in osteogenesis associated with aging. Dr. Aronson has considerable expertise and interest in the area of pediatric and young adult hip problems, as well as, clubfoot and other pediatric foot deformities. His ongoing research in distraction osteogenesis concentrates on nutritional, hormonal and growth factors that affect bone growth.
