John N. Insall’s legendary contributions to knee surgery were based on an academic pursuit of excellence in clinical research and patient care. His research endeavors encompassed biomechanics, surgical techniques and vigilant post-operative clinical follow-up. Inherent in his life’s work was the importance of educating knee surgeons worldwide. In recognition of his contributions and a desire to perpetuate his legacy, The Knee Society with the support of the Insall Foundation has endorsed the The Insall Traveling Fellowship. Since 2002, a group of four international surgeons have traveled around North America for one month to various Knee Society member programs. This fellowship continues to foster education and research, with a sharing of ideas, techniques and camaraderie between the traveling fellows and The Knee Society members.
