It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of Dr. Victor Ibrahim on August 23, 2018. As both his colleagues and patients can attest, Dr. Ibrahim was an integral part of the ROSM family since its inception. He was considered a national leader in regenerative orthopedics, publishing novel studies on the successful use of regenerative injections to treat shoulder tendon tears and avascular necrosis. He also co-developed a novel technique to successfully treat chronic facial palsy. His contributions to the organization and to the field of regenerative medicine will be greatly missed.
A public memorial service will be held on Monday, Aug. 27 from 5-8 p.m. at National Memorial Park: 7482 Lee Highway, Falls Church VA, 22042. A private funeral service will follow on Tuesday, Aug. 28.
