Gustave E. Fackelman


Gustave E. Fackelman


Dr. Gustave ‘Bud’ Fackelman was hugely influential in my early career.  He immersed me in all things orthopedic: He introduced me to the AO Foundation and its principles, he encouraged my interests in research, and he taught me how to be a better clinician. Bud could impart knowledge, inspire excellence, and instill attention to detail, all the while being a confidant and counselor. And he could do it with style.

Carl A. Kirker-Head, MA, Vet MB, DACVS
