VISTA, CA, December 05, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Hosalkar is the recent recipient of two different awards given in recognition of outstanding medical research presentation. In March of this year, Hosalkar received the Scientific Exhibit Special Recognition Award from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) for his presentation of "Infantile DDH: Screening, Safe-Swaddling, Harness Application and Follow-up Protocol." Later this year Hosalkar was given the Outstanding E-Poster Award from the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA) for "Previously Described Radiographic Parameters of Femoroacetabular Impingement are Common in Asymptomatic Patients."---
Hosalkar, an orthopedic surgeon, is currently the Director of the Center for Hip Preservation and Children's Orthopedics in San Diego, California. Hosalkar holds a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, and Master of Orthopedic Surgery. He finished first in the University of Bombay final M.B.B.S. Examination, setting all time record marks for the university. As a result of his standing first in his final year of medical school, Hosalkar received some eight different awards from academic, public, and social institutions. Since finishing his education, Hosalkar has gone on to become a successful surgeon, published author, respected researcher, and talented speaker.
The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) was founded at Northwestern University in 1933 and now has over 30,000 members. AAOS provides educational services for orthopedic surgeons and health professionals throughout the world. The Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA) is a non-profit organization of more than 1,100 surgeons, physicians, and health professionals committed to improving musculoskeletal care for adolescents and children. POSNA is dedicated to research, education, and practical application.
"I have been involved with both the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America for a number of years now, and I deeply respect both of those organizations," said Hosalkar.
In fact, Hosalkar has served on committees for each of the two organizations. Hosalkar was the AAOS Program Chair for their 2011 specialty day, held in San Diego on February 19th, 2011. More recently Hosalkar has been on the AAOS Guidelines Committee for Supracondylar Fractures in Skeletally Immature (2010-2011) and Hip Dysplasia (2012-2013). Hosalkar served as the POSNA Chairman for the Evidence Based Committee in 2012 and was a member of the same committee for three years.
"Part of the reason these awards and recognitions mean so much to me is rooted in my association with the members there. I've developed personal and professional relationships with the people at AAOS and POSNA, and I am honored that they think enough of my work to bestow these recognitions on me," Hosalkar said.
These two awards are just a drop in the bucket that is Hosalkar's trophy case. Hosalkar has racked up more than 20 unique awards since the beginning of his medical career, and he doesn't look ready to stop anytime soon. Hosalkar is busier than ever, being both a director and visiting professor.
"This is what I love to do, so I don't see a reason to quit working hard. People are counting on what I'm doing, so I'm going to do it well," Hosalkar said.
