JBJS is pleased once again to highlight our Elite Reviewers. The Elite Reviewers Program recognizes our best reviewers for their outstanding efforts. All JBJS reviewers help us maintain the highest standards for quality orthopaedic publishing.

How did you begin reviewing for other journals and for JBJS in particular?

I have published over 300 peer reviewed articles.  I published my first JBJS paper in 2001.  I started reviewing papers for many journals, including JBJS, shortly after that.

What is your top piece of advice for those reviewers who aspire to reach Elite status?

If you publish peer reviewed articles, have research grants, and/or are a member of AAOS, you have an obligation to review JBJS papers in your field.  If you are a thought leader in your field, you are obligated to reach Elite status.

Aside from orthopaedic manuscripts, what have you been reading lately?

I am an expert in the fields of Orthopaedics, Immunology, Bone Biology and Rheumatology, and try to stay current with JBJS, CORR, JOR, A&R, AR&T and JBMR.  For leisure I read biographies and Wine Spectator.
