Walter P. Blount Humanitarian Award 2015

"“ Walter P. Blount Humanitarian Award 2015 ” - Dr. S. Rajasekaran. The Walter Blount Award is an international humanitarian award given by the Scoliosis Research Society, USA to an individual who has provided outstanding service for those with spinal deformities, through their generous actions out of a sense of service to larger social and professional goals. Dr S Rajasekaran received the award during the Golden Jubilee Annual Meeting held at Minnesota, USA. Dr Rajasekaran was honoured for creating a low cost high quality spine surgery model which has benefited more than 7000 poor patients. This model was created by a combination of the entire medical team operating free for underprivileged patients, development and use of low cost indigenous implants (that cost one tenth of the cost of imported implants), a heavy subsidy from hospital and techniques like low density implant fixation. This model has been appreciated by the International body as the most suited not only for developing nations but also for many advanced countries as adoption of these principles will bring the cost tremendously."
