Go ALL IN with Recurring Giving

It may not sound obvious, but donating is good for your health. According to a study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic, donating does more than just give you a warm and fuzzy feeling from helping others. Donating has a profound impact on both an individual’s physical and mental well-being.


According to the article, a smile isn’t the only reaction that comes from gift giving. Donating, whether big or small, causes a chemical response with your brain secreting “feel good” chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. When we do things for other people it makes us feel more engaged and joyful which is good for health and happiness.

Go ALL IN with Recurring Giving

You can make a lasting impact today! Small tasks, when done consistently, can add up to create lasting impacts and the same is true for giving. We know it is not always financially prudent to give at the amount you deem beneficial to the AANA Education Foundation, but have you ever considered spreading that gift amount over 12 months or 4 quarters throughout the year?


Recurring gifts make an impact by providing funding that allows the AANA Education Foundation to uphold its mission. Your donation empowers the Foundation to:

  • Maintain and expand the scholarship programs that provides attendance at state-of-the-art educational courses.
  • Fund research grants for orthopaedic surgical advancement and innovation.
  • Fund programs like the Traveling Fellowships – an experience of a lifetime for those chosen.
  • And more!

Your Donation Supports Important Research Studies Like This


The AANA Education Foundation was founded to provide enduring support to arthroscopic surgeons. One method of enduring support involves important and impactful research grants. Today, the Foundation is pleased to announce grant funding of $50,000 toward the research study titled, "Chondrocyte Viability of Novel Osteochondral Allograft Products." This study involves osteochondral allograft (OCA) transplantations and their impact on the surgical techniques Orthopaedic Surgeons use regularly.


Developed by David P. Trofa, M.D., Clark Hung, M.D., Beth Ashinsky, M.D., Ph.D. and Afrain Boby, M.S., this study aims to evaluate the overall effectiveness of OCA-related products versus current treatment strategies involving tissue harvested from the same individual during surgery. The study’s results could lead to improved surgical techniques that an Orthopaedic Surgeon could use to treat common knee injuries. Additionally, this study allows for the extension of tissue viability that will make the supply and availability more accessible to all patient populations.

Reflecting on What's Ahead


As the 2022-2023 AANA president, I am humbled to assume leadership of our association. I hope to build upon the successful term of my predecessor, Dr. Mark Getelman, under whose leadership AANA was able to reach and then exceed the goals set for the 40th Anniversary Campaign.


Despite the success of this campaign, it is still important for us to encourage giving from our members to the AANA Education Foundation. This ensures that current and future generations of arthroscopic surgeons are equipped with the expertise necessary to advance their careers as well as arthroscopic surgery. AANA’s purpose is “to advance the art and science of arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery through education, skills assessment and advocacy,” per its mission statement. Each AANA program is designed to fulfill that mission and must be supported by revenues, some of which the AANA Education Foundation guarantees.


Education is expensive. Surgical skills education, particularly practicing on cadaver specimens, requires significant funding support. It would be difficult for AANA to continue providing excellent skills education without the support of the Foundation. These programs offer unbiased instruction from world renowned Orthopaedic Surgeons. This year, we are planning new initiatives to bring members these educational opportunities with more convenient regional courses; having a strong Foundation behind us helps expand these educational efforts. These initiatives include scholarships for surgeons of all career levels to attend courses, conferences and more.

AANA's 40th Anniversary Campaign Goal Exceeded!

Legacy Donor Highlight: Jessica H.J. Ryu, M.D.


Supporting education is an important and simple way to benefit the next generation of Orthopaedic Surgeons. By providing a $100,000 life insurance policy legacy gift to the AANA Education Foundation, Jessica H.J. Ryu, M.D., an AANA Member since 2014, will help ensure funding for important arthroscopic educational opportunities and initiatives for years to come.


Dr. Ryu’s decision to pursue a career in orthopedic surgery, specifically arthroscopy, was in large part due to the influence of her father, Richard K.N. Ryu, M.D., a past president of AANA who has created his own legacy of advancing arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery, and who remains an active donor to the AANA Education Foundation.


“My dad has had a big influence on my life and my career,” Dr. Ryu explains. “He has been one of many AANA mentors who have had a profound effect on my surgical practice, my skills acquisition and the development of my practice. AANA has always been a pivotal and influential organization for my father, and from an educational and collegial standpoint, has also become the most important orthopaedic organization for me in advancing my knowledge and skills.”


In addition to her father’s mentorship, Dr. Ryu credits the many AANA mentors who have contributed to her success as an arthroscopist. “As a surgeon who is early in practice, I’ve benefited from the advice and hands-on training from some of the most talented surgeons in the world: Drs. Buddy Savoie, Mark Getelman, Steve Snyder, Jeff Abrams, Rick Angelo, Nick Sgaglione and Mike O’Brien to name just a few. My interactions with these thought leaders and skilled surgeons have been through AANA meetings and OLC courses where their instruction and interactions are superb. It is important for surgeons who are early in their career to have the opportunity to improve their arthroscopic skills and their confidence. Through AANA, I have met amazing, dedicated surgeons who inspire me to be the best surgeon I can possibly be.”

Supporting Arthroscopy Education & Innovation


Jerry W. Van Meter, M.D., FAANA has been a long-time member of AANA, having joined in 1986 when the organization was just starting to grow into what would become a global community of over 5,500 Orthopaedic Surgeons and advanced practitioners. He has also been a donor to the AANA Education Foundation for many years, and credits the Foundation for supporting AANA, the organization that has served as an outlet for arthroscopy education and innovation.


Dr. Van Meter was born in Kunming, China, adopted by American missionaries and brought to the United States at the age of two. Although raised in a predominantly white community in southern California, Dr. Van Meter cherished the relationships and opportunities he was exposed to while valuing opportunities to embrace his Chinese heritage.


While attending medical school at the University of California, Davis in the 1970s, the orthopaedic surgery department chief, Paul R. Lipscomb, M.D., his staff and Orthopaedic Residents encouraged Dr. Van Meter to explore a career in orthopaedics. During his final year of orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of California, San Francisco in 1981, James M. Glick, M.D., an early member of AANA, exposed him to and encouraged his interest and training in arthroscopy, what was then a fledgling procedure.

Donor Highlight: Merrick J. Wetzler, M.D., FAANA


This month, the AANA Education Foundation would like to recognize Dr. Wetzler, who has been an AANA Member since 2011 and regular donor to the AANA Education Foundation since 2013.


Dr. Wetzler has been heavily involved in AANA from the start of membership, having served as an instructor for several AANA lab courses and on multiple committees, including Advocacy, Bylaws and Membership, and served as an associate editor for Arthroscopy, AANA's peer-reviewed journal, and remains on the editorial board.


To Dr. Wetzler, the AANA Education Foundation means having the opportunity to give back to AANA, starting with supporting AANA’s wide array of lab courses as well as the AANA Annual Meeting.


“The AANA Education Foundation allows Orthopaedic Surgeons, especially those in private practice like myself, to attend a course as well as act as instructors. This allows me and other Orthopaedic Surgeons the opportunity to stay on top of our game,” Dr. Wetzler notes. “Without experiences such as AANA lab courses or the AANA Annual Meeting, I wouldn’t be fortunate enough to interact with and learn from leaders all over the world, which is unique in and of itself."


The AANA Education Foundation also means having an outlet to give back to the next generation of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Having served as a lab course instructor and as a moderator for the 2019 AANA Annual Meeting, Dr. Wetzler takes tremendous pride in sharing his knowledge and skills to those who are early in their careers. This outlet is also how he makes his money matter – by giving back to Orthopaedic Surgeons who are just starting out, his contributions transcend his own time.
