About the Pietrogrande Prize
The Pietrogrande Prize, created in 2005, recognizes a healthcare professional who has significantly contributed to furthering the mission and goals of the WFH Musculoskeletal Committee. The prize is named in honour of Dr. Vincenzo Pietrogrande, a leading orthopedic surgeon and director of the Institute of Clinical Orthopedics at the University of Milan, Italy. Pietrogrande was the first chair of the group that eventually became the WFH Musculoskeletal Committee. As of 2013, the prize has been presented every two years at the WFH Musculoskeletal Congress.
