Keynote Address: Orthopaedics and the Vampire Economy
Biographical Information  


Dr. Lee Hieb began her career in medicine at age four, accompanying her father on housecalls along the back roads of Iowa. She graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in Rochester New York, and completed an Orthopaedic Residency in the U.S. Navy. 

After serving as a general Orthopaedic Surgeon with the U.S. Marine Corps, she returned to Rochester where she was the only woman to be appointed as the Louis A. Goldstein fellow of Spinal Surgery.  

Dr. Hieb has been in private practice for over 20 years, and this experience has led her to become an outspoken advocate for the free market solution to health care. Dr. Hieb has served on the board of the Arizona Medical Association, is immediate past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons and a lifelong member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. She currently divides her time between an Orthopaedic practice in Iowa, chicken raising and caring for her husband and two sons.
