Vincent R. Hentz Scholarship

Dr. Hentz is a master technician, a respected researcher, and a superior teacher and mentor.  He has dedicated his career to ensure the next generation is prepared and we are happy to extend this legacy through the Hentz Scholarship program.  This scholarship is open to plastic surgery residents and plastic hand fellows.  A big congratulations goes to Aviram M. Giladi, MD, MS (show here), a resident at the University of Michigan who was selected as the inaugural Hentz Scholarship winner.

The Vincent R. Hentz Education Fund was established by Stanford plastic surgery alumni and is administered by the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand.

Daniel C. Riordan Award

Dr. Riordan was an outstanding clinician, teacher, and role model.  He was respected worldwide for his expertise in congenital, arthritic, degenerative, and neurological conditions of the hand.  The Daniel C. Riordan award recognizes a promising surgical resident or hand fellow. We are happy to announce Sonia Chaudhry, MD (pictured far left) a Fellow with the University of Colorado/Denver and Lindsey C. Valone, MD, MAS (pictured left), a Fellow with the University of California, San Francisco as the 2016 Riordan Award winners.
