Roger A. Mann Award Recipients

The prestigious Roger A. Mann Award is given in recognition of the outstanding clinical paper presented at the AOFAS Annual Meeting. Nominated studies are selected by the AOFAS Program Committee from blind review of abstracts submitted for consideration for the scientific program. Named in honor of Roger A. Mann, MD, an educator, researcher, and past president of AOFAS, the award was established in 1994 by Dr. Mann's fellows. The award is presented to the senior author and includes a framed certificate and monetary award.
