Jean-Pierre Farcy, M.D., graduated from Marseille-Aix Medical School. He successfully completed a competitive exam, was named “interne des Hôpitaux,” and trained as a surgeon specializing in trauma. His thesis on Scheuermann’s disease demonstrated his major interest in spine pathology and surgery.
Board certified in France as an orthopedic surgeon, he pursued an academic career, first in Marseille, followed by 30 years in the USA where he had the opportunity to teach orthopedic spine deformity surgery at both Columbia and New York Universities.
Dr. Farcy has published extensively about spine, and co-authored many textbooks. A member of national and international scientific societies, he was an invited visiting professor at several universities in the US and in other countries. In 2001 Dr. Farcy served as President of the 76th Reunion of the French Academy of Orthopedic Surgery (S.O.F.C.O.T.) in Paris.
With pre-eminent colleagues in the field of spine surgery and research, he has created the “Balance Research Foundation,” dedicated to a better understanding of how balance affects our quality of life.[/person]
