Congratulations, Jon Dee, MS, DVM, DACVS!!!!!

The 2016 ACVS FOUNDATION LEGENDS AWARD was presented to Jon F. Dee, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS, Diplomate ACVSMR, this year for his dedication and contributions to the field of veterinary surgery. This award recognizes ACVS Diplomates who have developed a surgical or diagnostic procedure of significant value, proven by becoming the treatment or test of choice for a given condition. The procedure or test has “withstood the test of time” and, although possibly modified over time, remains the treatment or diagnostic method of choice or the scientific basis for the current treatment of choice. The procedure or test is novel
and involves advancements in veterinary surgical science and not reapplication of general
medical science.

Dr. Dee was recognized because of his role as one of the primary surgeons responsible for defining fracture types and treatments in the carpus and tarsus in the racing dog. He developed numerous
guidelines and techniques for dealing with these challenging injuries.

Dr. Dee has numerous awards, including the AVMA Practitioner Research Award, the
AAHA Practitioner of the Year Award-Southeast, the Wilford S. Bailey Distinguished
Alumnus of Auburn, and honorary ESVOT membership.
