Steven Arnoczky, DVM, was inducted into the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) Hall of Fame at its annual meeting in Seattle on July 11.

Dr. Arnoczky is a sports medicine researcher from the Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He has conducted basic science orthopaedic research for 40 years.

Only the second non-physician to receive this honor, Arnoczky is being recognized for basic science contributions to the advancement of ligament reconstruction of the knee and meniscal repair and replacement.

“This extraordinary honor for Dr. Arnoczky reflects the human medical community’s recognition of his contributions to orthopaedic medicine,” said John Baker, DVM, Ph.D., dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine. “It speaks to his accomplishments in basic science and comparative research, and his contributions reflect well on the college’s leadership in the comparative medicine philosophy.”

The AOSSM established the Hall of Fame in 2001 to honor members of the orthopaedic sports medicine community who have made original and significant contributions to the specialty. Induction is the highest honor given to a society member. There are currently 58 members from 11 countries in the Hall of Fame.
