Scottish Rite Hospital Chief Of Staff Emeritus Receives Worldwide Honor

Doctors and researchers from Scottish Rite Hospital attended the 53rd annual Scoliosis Research Society Meeting (SRS) in Bologna, Italy. SRS is an international organization that was founded in 1966 and has become one of the most renowned spine societies in the country. Each year, members of SRS gather to discuss the latest research and treatment techniques for spinal deformities.
This year, our Chief of Staff Emeritus, J.A. “Tony” Herring, M.D. was the recipient of the 2018 SRS Lifetime Achievement Award. The SRS Lifetime Achievement Award honors an SRS member for distinguished service to the Society as well as significant contributions to spinal deformity care. Dr. Herring also had the privilege of being interviewed by the SRS historian, where he was able to reflect on his career as a surgeon as well as share some of his recent research findings.
“Much like our foundational elements of research, education and patient care, each member of our team is a pillar,” Dr. Daniel J. Sucato, Chief of Staff for Scottish Rite Hospital believes. “We support one another, hold up our ideals and together we stand strong in our commitment to improving the lives of children with orthopedic conditions.” Dr. Herring has dedicated his career to providing groundbreaking treatment for his patients and we are proud to call him our own. Please join us as we congratulate Dr. Herring on his great honor. 
Experts in our Center for Excellence in Spine continually conduct research to better understand complex pediatric spine conditions as well as determine the best courses of treatment. International meetings, like SRS, allow our medical staff to share their knowledge and latest findings for patients diagnosed with various spine conditions.
