Congratulations to Dr. Paul Sethi who received the prestigious 2019 Achievement Award from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) for his many contributions to education, research and advocacy in both AAOS endeavors as well as elsewhere in the profession of orthopaedic surgery.

In addition to being an outstanding orthopedic surgeon and Castle Connolly Top Doctor in America, Dr. Sethi is president of the ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education (ONSF). Dr. Sethi’s research has recently included clinical study of the use of a long lasting analgesic, Exparel, during surgery to reduce the need for opioids to control post surgical pain; the establishment of better methods for surgical skin preparation (cleaning) to lower the risk of surgical infection; development of a new technique to repair chronic or weakened biceps tendons; and the evaluation of surgical needles in tendon surgery to establish international guidelines on needle use.
