Date:10/27/2009

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) awarded Jay Smith, M.D., of Mayo Clinic's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the Physiatric Association of Spine, Sports and Occupational Rehabilitation (PASSOR) Legacy Award and Lectureship. The award recognizes an individual who has advanced musculoskeletal physiatry through clinical care, education, service or research. Dr. Smith is the first to receive the PASSOR Legacy Award and Lectureship.

"Dr. Smith is highly innovative and highly knowledgeable, bringing new insights to patient care through his excellence in practice, teaching and research," says Kathryn Stolp, M.D., chair of Mayo Clinic's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

"It's an honor to be recognized, but it's truly my collaborative partners at Mayo Clinic and other institutions across the country who deserve recognition," says Dr. Smith. "Our hope is that continued collaboration will help improve the lives of our patients dealing with acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders."

Dr. Smith will present his work on musculoskeletal ultrasound at the 2009 AAPM&R Annual Assembly this week in Austin, Texas. In addition to his research work on ultrasound, Dr. Smith also conducts research on golf biomechanics and injuries, shoulder and elbow biomechanics and injuries, and throwing biomechanics.
