Dr. Heckman, thank you for your more-than-generous introduction. I would like to thank the fellows of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons for giving me the opportunity to serve you as your next President, a privilege that I humbly accept. These are busy and exciting times, with many forces testing our resolve. So, know that I call upon each of you to assist me in the work necessary to maintain the goals and standards of our Academy. It is special for me that my family can be with me today—my wife and partner of thirty-five years, Barbara; our four children, Lisa, Chris, Matt, and Peter; their spouses, Greg, Yuko, Tara, and Rene; and especially my three sisters, my Mom and Dad, and Barbara's Mom.
