Summary:Physician and researcher Dr. Marvin L. Shelton was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on July 25, 1931. He earned his B.S., M.A. and M.D. degrees from Howard University. Completing his residency in Honolulu, Hawaii, he served as chief of the Orthopedic Section at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. From 1966 to 1994, Shelton directed the Residency Training Program at Harlem Hospital Center, encountering several unstable ankle fractures. In 1967, he pioneered a surgical technique that greatly improved the prognosis for patients with this type of injury. He helped engineer a contoured plate system that gained wide spread usage. Shelton's research and discoveries made him a prolific lecturer and publisher in the orthopedic area. He held visiting professorships at several universities including Yale University and served in leadership positions in several professional associations. In 1992, he joined New York's Presbyterian Hospital, working as attending surgeon. Shelton passed away July 7, 2004, at age 72.
