Renowned, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgeon, John Bergfeld, MD, Inducted into Sports Medicine Hall of Fame

John Bergfeld, MD, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Director of Operating Room Management, will join three other North American physicians as a 2009 American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Hall of Fame inductee.

Keystone, CO (Vocus) July 11, 2009 -- John Bergfeld, MD, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Director of Operating Room Management, will join three other North American physicians as a 2009 American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Hall of Fame inductee. Dr. Bergfeld will also be receiving the Robert E. Leach, MD, Mr. Sports Medicine Award, one of AOSSM's highest honors. The award ceremonies will be taking place July 10 and 11th at the AOSSM Annual Meeting in Keystone, Colorado.

Dr. Bergfeld began his sports medicine career nearly 40 years ago while training at Temple University and then during his residency in orthopaedics and general surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. He also served his country as the Chief of Orthopaedics at the U.S. Naval Academy and as a general surgeon on the USS Dubuque in 1972.

In addition, to his Naval service, Dr. Bergfeld has had a lengthy tenure as head team physician for the Cleveland Browns and Cleveland Cavaliers. He has been nominated as one of the "Best Doctor's in America," more than 15 times and recently received the John H. Budd MD Distinguished Membership Award.

He has served on countless committees and assumed numerous leadership roles within the AOSSM and other organizations. Dr. Bergfeld served as AOSSM President from 1992-1993 and on the Board of Directors from 1990- 1995. He recently served as President for the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine (ISAKOS) from 2005 - 2007 and was a founder of the NFL Safety Panel.

Dr. Bergfeld's pioneering research on non operative treatment of the isolated posterior cruciate ligament injury and on posterior inlay technique of PCL reconstruction have guided treatment of this type of injury for many years.

Additionally, Dr. Bergfeld has mentored hundreds of aspiring sports medicine professionals through his interactions and guidance of orthopaedic surgical residents and sports medicine fellows. As a result, his influence is touching thousands of patients every year as his philosophy of caring and understanding is carried out by his trainees.

AOSSM established the Hall of Fame in 2001 to honor members of the orthopaedic sports medicine community who have contributed significantly to the specialty. Nominations are submitted by AOSSM members and reviewed by and selected by the Hall of Fame subcommittee. The Mr. Sports Medicine recipient receives a $5,000 donation to the charity of his/her choosing.

The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) is a world leader in sports medicine education, research, communication and fellowship, and includes national and international orthopaedic sports medicine leaders. The Society works closely with many other sports medicine specialists, including athletic trainers, physical therapists, family physicians, and others to improve the identification, prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries.
