I'd like to find out if my surgery/medical condition has been presented at conferences.

The day after my operation my surgeon told me that my situation was so unique that he would be using me as a case study in future conferences. I have googled his name and have found some blurbs but no full article. I guess I, as a layman don't have access? The surgery was 5 years ago and I don't want to contact him to ask about it for many reasons. The surgery was a failure and I want details regarding why my situation was such an unusual case. My surgeon is not THE guy in his field but he is in the top 5. He is an ortho surgeon if that matters at all. How can I find out more?
