Jonathan Deland, M.D. and Scott Ellis, M.D., orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), were recently honored at the annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS). Drs. Deland and Ellis received the prestigious J. Leonard Goldner Award, a recognition that highlights the most outstanding research paper presented at the AOFAS annual meeting.
"In this procedure, a bone graft of various sizes can be placed in the side of the foot to shift the flatfoot. Patient outcomes were measured by the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score, which was validated in a previous HSS study for patients with flatfoot. This information may help guide surgeons at the time of flatfoot surgery, according to Dr. Ellis and Dr. Deland."
"The meaning of this award for us is that the AOFAS recognizes the importance of our work and, just as significantly, recognizes the value of good research." says
