"The concept of developing a society within the ranks of Orthopedic Surgery in North America devoted to the diseases of and the surgery of the hip joint was originated by Frank Stinchfield. As president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic surgeons (AAOS), secretary of the American Orthopaedic Association (AOA), president of the American College of Surgeons, and Professor and Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at Columbia’s School of Physicians and Surgeons, he was a man of broad experience and wide vision. …he saw the potential for a major role of total hip replacement surgery in the management of end-stage arthritic problems of the hip."
