  • Recipient of The 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award
  • John J. Callaghan, MD

     

    John has been involved in all aspects of hip surgery over his 34 year career including research, education and patient care. He has made major contributions to the field of hip surgery both in basic biomechanics research and clinical outcomes. Through funding, that included principle investigator funding, from the National Institutes of Health, The Veterans Administration, and the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, he and his collaborators made fundamental contributions to the field of hip arthroplasty including the relationship of sliding distance to wear, impingement and dislocation mechanics, edge detection measurements of wear, acetabular preparation for cementless fixation and the contribution of third body particles to wear. The research has been recognized by multiple organizations through their society research awards including The Hip Society (6), the Orthopaedic Research Society (2 Harris Awards), the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (2) and the American Bone and Joint Surgeons (Nicolas Andry Award).
     
    On the clinical front, Dr. Callaghan has helped pioneer the reporting of long term outcomes in all areas of hip arthroplasty: primary cemented and cementless fixation, and revision cemented and cementless fixation, including functional long-term evaluation in the younger patient. In addition, he has made major contributions in outcomes research using large administrative databases. As President of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in 2010, he assured Academy resources were available to rejuvenate the American Joint Replacement Registry initiative. He has been involved in the development of a number of the successful second generation cementless and cemented hip implants.
     
    Dr. Callaghan’s contributions in moving and leading the field of hip surgery have been recognized by his peers electing him as President of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, The Hip Society, and the International Hip Society.
