Spencer & Maguire Inducted Into AOA
Edwin Spencer, MD, and James Kimbro Maguire, MD, have been inducted into the prestigious America Orthopaedic Association (AOA).
Drs. Spencer and Maguire join KOC physicians Drs. Robert Madigan, Joseph DeFiore and David Fardon as AOA members. Founded in 1887, AOA is the oldest and most distinguished orthopaedic association in the world and is considered the honor society for orthopaedic surgeons.
AOA’s mission is “To identify, develop, engage and recognize leadership to further the art and science of orthopaedics.” Membership in AOA is extended to those who have made a significant contribution to education, research, and the practice of orthopaedic surgery.
KOC Physicians Win Neer Award
KOC Surgeons Edwin Spencer, MD, and Brian Holloway, MD, are the recipients of one of the nation’s most prestigious orthopaedic research awards.
Drs. Spencer and Holloway were presented the Charles S. Neer Award for an article they authored on rotator cuff disease. The Neer Award is given annually for the best shoulder research performed that year.
The KOC physicians’ research is being conducted in conjunction with the MOON Group. Based at Vanderbilt University, the MOON Group includes physicians at many other medical centers such as Ohio State University, University of Iowa, University of California-San Diego, Washington University, and the University of Colorado.
The award honors Charles S. Neer II, MD, who in 1985 created a fund to recognize outstanding clinical investigation that contributes to the understanding, care and prevention of injuries to the shoulder and elbow. This prestigious award has been presented annually since the first Open Meeting of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. In 1987, the award was expanded to recognize both clinical and research categories.
Papers are selected by the Program Committee from the numerous abstracts submitted each year. The Neer Award Research Committee reviews and grades manuscripts to determine the final winners.
