Keystone, CO (Vocus) June 30, 2009 -- Sports medicine leader, and current editor-in-chief of Orthopaedic Knowledge Online, William A. Grana, MD, MPH, will be inducted into the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine's (AOSSM) Hall of Fame, Friday, July 11th during its Annual Meeting in Keystone, Colorado.

Dr. Grana began his medical studies at Harvard University and completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Washington University's Barnes Hospital in St. Louis. He then performed his fellowship in sports medicine under Don O'Donoghue, MD at the University of Oklahoma and began his teaching career. In 2000, he left his clinical professorship and director of sports medicine position with the university to become the head of the orthopaedic surgery department at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, where he is currently a tenured professor.

In addition to running a private practice, publishing more than 100 scientific papers and three books, Dr. Grana has served as an orthopaedic consultant for the University of Arizona Athletic Department, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma City University, Texas Rangers, Oklahoma Redhawks, and the Chicago White Sox. He was a physician member of the U.S. Olympic Committee's 1985 Winter World University Games Team in Bulluno and Cortina, Italy, a member of the 1986 Olympic Festival medical staff in Houston, Texas, head physician for the U.S. team at the 1987 Pan American Games in Indianapolis, IN., and the USOC's medical staff for the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.

He has served on numerous boards and committees for the AOSSM, the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). He served as AOSSM president from 2005 to 2006 and has served as a member of the AOSSM Medical Publishing Board of Trustees. During his appointments on other committees and boards he assisted with the development of online educational tools, as well as a certificate in orthopaedic science for graduate students studying physiology and engineering.

Dr. Grana and his wife have two children and three grandchildren.

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 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.
