The orthopaedic community this week was saddened to learn of the passing of Richard H. Rothman, MD, PhD. Dr. Rothman was a founding member of AAHKS and served as President from 1998-1999. He had a resounding impact in the field of hip and knee arthroplasty and a personal connection with the many surgeons he mentored throughout his amazing career. As we head to the AAHKS Annual Meeting, he and his family are in our hearts and minds. Read the tribute to Dr. Rothman by his namesake Rothman Institute.
