    The Hip Society congratulates the 2020 Fellows!  Our members look forward to hosting them in 2021!
    Named to honor the significant contributions, and to preserve the legacy, of Richard H. Rothman, MD, PhD and Chitranjan S. Ranawat, MD, The Hip Society’s Rothman-Ranawat Traveling Fellowship is open to four (4) young orthopaedic surgeons from North America (USA and Canada), and throughout the world.  Once selected, the traveling fellows visit up to ten (10) sites in North America as identified by the Fellowship & Mentorship Committee.  The host sites structure the fellows’ visits to include personal interaction, conferences, surgical observations, and cadaver labs.  The ultimate goal of the fellowship is to offer the young surgeons an inspirational tour of state-of-the-art facilities providing exemplary surgical care of the hip joint throughout North America MORE.

  • About The Hip Society
  • "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."
    William H. Harris, MD, D.Sc, Founding Member and Past President of The Hip Society
