To finish the 25th year anniversary of our journal, we along with our editorial board have selected 14 topics felt to be among the top important and interesting procedures in sports medicine and arthroscopy. We have asked well-known experts in their respective fields to write concise articles telling us where we were 25 years ago, where we are currently, and what the future may bring for these topics. Some of the articles contain additional material that can be found on our journal website: www.sportsmedarthro.com. Please also read our first editorial of this year in issue 26.1. We sincerely hope that our readers will continue to enjoy our journal and share in our 25-year celebration ending with the current issue.
Tribute to our Co-Editor-In-Chief Kenneth E. DeHaven, MD
Kenneth E. DeHaven, MD, is retiring at the end of this year, and Gregory C. Fanelli, MD, will move up to the position of Co-Editor-In-Chief. Alan Barber, MD, has been selected to be the next Associate Editor.
Dr DeHaven joined our Journal in 1993. He contributed immensely to the Journal over the past 25 years. He will be sorely missed by the Editors, the Editorial Board members, and the staff of SMAR. Dr DeHaven attended Dartmouth College where he excelled in varsity football and was captain of the 1960 team. His medical training was at both Dartmouth and Northwestern. He spent 2 years in the Navy as a Lt. Commander. He then joined the faculty at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, working his way up to full professor. Among his many achievements, Dr DeHaven was president of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, the Arthroscopy Association of North America, the International Society of the Knee, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Dr DeHaven has made important pioneering contributions to open and arthroscopic meniscal repair among his many fields of interest. In 2009, he began a side interest in servicing and repairing mechanical clocks.
We will miss Dr DeHaven dearly and wish him and his wife Jean well in his forthcoming retirement years.
