The Andrew N. Swanson, MD, Spine Awards were developed in 2009 to honor the memory of Dr. Swanson, who demonstrated from his residency days through his brief professional career, a commitment to provide compassionate medical care and services to all he encountered. He participated in humanitarian work on a regular basis, after graduating from HSS traveled twice a year to give pro-bono surgical care to patients in Ghana, Africa.
