William J. Robb, MD served as a session moderator for the Health Care Policy Symposium, part of the 24th American Association of Hip And Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Meeting, held November 6-9 in Dallas, Texas. This annual event is designed to provide practicing orthopedic surgeons with state-of-the-art information about the surgical applications and treatment protocols for the diagnosis and management of total hip and knee replacement, and to enhance the care of patients with arthritis and degenerative diseases.
Dr. Robb also presented the first annual AAHKS Humanitarian Award, given to Harpal “Paul” S. Khanuja, MD for his efforts as the Co-Founder and Medical Director of Operation Walk Maryland, a private, not-for-profit volunteer medical service organization providing free hip and knee replacement surgeries in developing countries and the United States.
The Humanitarian Award was established to recognize AAHKS members who have distinguished themselves through providing humanitarian medical services and programs with a significant focus on musculoskeletal diseases and trauma including the hip and knee in the United States or abroad.
