University Orthopedics creates endowment in memory of spine surgeon


East Providence, R.I.-based University Orthopedics formed an endowment in memory of spine surgeon Mark Palumbo, MD.

The Mark Palumbo, MD Endowment for Spinal Surgery Research and Education came from a $1.5 million commitment from anonymous donors, according to an April 11 news release shared with Becker's. Dr. Palumbo died in 2019 at the age of 57 and practiced with University Orthopedics for more than 25 years.

"These funds will help identify new models of care delivery, building on the significant basic science advances championed by Dr. Palumbo, and ultimately influencing orthopedic innovations at the regional, national, and international level that improve the quality and outcomes of patient care," Alan Daniels, MD, chief of The Center for Spine Health at University Orthopedics, said in the release. "It is incredibly rewarding to know that the endeavors of this caring, thoughtful man and skilled surgeon will continue to thrive thanks to the creation of this endowment."
