Scott D. Boden, MD, of Emory University School of Medicine, and Scott A. Rodeo, MD, of Hospital for Special Surgery, were among those named 2021 fellows of the Orthopaedic Research Society at the society’s annual meeting.

Rodeo, an Orthopedics Today Editorial Board Member, is an attending orthopedic surgeon and clinician-scientist at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York. He has appointments in the center’s research department, where he is involved in the tissue engineering, repair and regeneration program, and in the department of orthopedic surgery at HSS Sports Medicine Institute.
In announcing the 2021 class of Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) fellows, ORS President Susan Chubinskaya, PhD, said the ORS fellows program, which began in 2018, recognizes the service and leadership contributions of individuals with substantial achievements and expert knowledge and who have made significant contributions within musculoskeletal research and to the ORS.
“ORS fellows represent the society as a thought leader and topic experts in their respective disciplines. These individuals will also serve as role models in the ORS community and in the field of musculoskeletal research,” Chubinskaya said. “ORS fellows enhance the core values of the ORS in the field of musculoskeletal research.”
