Dr. J. Richard Steadman Honored at the AANA 31st Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL; Researchers and Surgeons from SPRI Presented on Various Topics

Dr. J. Richard Steadman, Founder and Managing Partner of The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado and Founder/Chairman of the Board for The Steadman Philippon Research Institute, was recently honored with the Richard O’Connor Research Award. Dr. Steadman, internationally known for his work as an orthopedic knee surgeon, received the award for the research paper titled “Ten Year Survivorship Following Knee Arthroscopy in Patients with Moderate to Severe Osteoarthritis of the Knee”. Dr Steadman developed this arthroscopic treatment package for patients who have osteoarthritis, but are not ready to change their activity level or proceed to total knee replacement. This paper showed that a large number of patients could delay total knee replacement for 10 years. His co-authors on the award paper areKaren Briggs, Lauren Matheny, and Dr. Henry Ellis. Dr. Steadman’s presentation, and many others, were highlighted at the Arthroscopy Association of North America’s 31st Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, May 17-18.  

The theme of this year’s meeting, “Education for Tomorrow”, set the tone for new research and educational offerings for attendees. A handful of other researchers and surgeons from The Steadman Philippon Research Institute in Vail traveled to Orlando for the meetings, and were also on-site to present numerous topics, including:
