Dr. Harish Hosalkar, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and director
of Joint Preservation and Deformity Correction at Paradise Valley Hospital,
just received the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Accomplishment
(AAOS) Award in February 2016.
“It is indeed an honor for me to recognize academy members like [Dr.
Hosalkar] whose volunteer efforts support our patients, colleagues, the
academy and the orthopedic profession," said Dr. David Teuscher,
AAOS president. "You and the other academy fellows who give of yourselves
are the reason for the strength of the academy in all its endeavors.”
“It is a privilege and honor to be recognized by the academy and
my peers for my work; I am humbled," Dr. Hosalkar added.
