2018 Kappa Delta Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award Recipients

Congratulations to Dr. Paul E. Beaulé and his team for winning the 2018 Kappa Delta Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award for their research identifying the origins of the hip pistol grip/CAM…

Dr. Beaule and his team provided world-class care, right here in the nation’s capital. Since my back surgery, I am fully back in action!

Stephen B.Ottawa, 2016 Patient

Dr. Abdelbary and Dr. Meghan, his resident, and the entire surgical/anesthetic team responded to my health situation with clinical mastery that I did not know was even possible. The care was delivered with skill, gifted communication, compassion and inspiring excellence. Thank you for all the wonderful care I received. And I’m happy to report that while I may never get through an airport metal detector quite the same way, I am well on the road to recovery.

Thank you.
