The Hip Society 2025 Scientific Awards

The Hip Society, annually, gives out three (3) scientific awards for papers submitted from practicing orthopaedic surgeons and training programs.  Award-winning papers are invited to present at The Hip Society/AAHKS Specialty Day during the AAOS Annual Meeting.  The 2025 Specialty Day will be held on Date TBD, in San Diego, CA.  More about AAOS 2025 Annual Meeting HERE. 

Award submissions are solicited from members and non-members of The Hip Society. The deadline to submit a full manuscript in consideration for the 2025 Scientific Awards is November 18, 2024. 

The awards are named after individuals who have made outstanding contributions to reconstructive surgery of the hip: 

  • The Otto E. Aufranc, MD Award and the Sir John Charnley, CBE, FRS Award: Manuscripts submitted in these categories are to be based on innovative research, either clinical or basic, encompassing important advances in the management of hip disorders. 
  • The Frank E. Stinchfield, MD Award: This award is given to a resident or a fellow in training for an outstanding contribution to the study of hip problems. 


Manuscripts are reviewed and awards are granted at the sole discretion of the Program Committee of The Hip Society. 

Presenting authors of each winning paper will receive a (US) $2,000 honorarium and a certificate. Copies for co-authors will be available for purchase.


Instructions to Contenders: 

  1. A paper submitted for consideration to The Hip Society may not be submitted also to The Knee Society, whose award cycle and process is similar.  If a study is relevant to both hip and knee, submitters must choose only one Society for their submission.

  2. Submitted papers must:
    • Highlight quality basic science or clinical research specifically related to the hip joint. 
    • Be completely original work and may not be submitted to, and/or published in part or in whole in, any journal or electronic media prior to presentation at Specialty Day.
