Last month, Matthew T. Binkley, MD was elected to join the ranks of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) as a Candidate Member.
The ASES notes in a press release that candidate membership in the organization is a privilege and an honor only awarded to young orthopaedic surgeons who have completed a fellowship in shoulder surgery, elbow surgery and/or sports medicine. Membership is by invitation only and candidates must demonstrate active involvement in scientific and clinical orthopaedic education and be recommended by their fellowship program director.
“ASES is an outstanding organization founded in 1982 by a small group of like-minded surgeons interested in caring for patients with shoulder and elbow problems,” said Dr. William Levine, 36th ASES president. “Today, ASES has grown incredibly to over 1,000 members and continues to be a global shoulder and elbow leader in education, research and patient care. It is our honor and privilege to welcome the latest outstanding shoulder and elbow surgeons into the ranks.”
Binkley, in his third year in practice at UBMD Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, has a promising career ahead of him being recognized with such a national honor. Congratulations to Dr. Binkley on becoming a Candidate Member of the society.
