Dennis Weiner, MD, posthumously inducted into Pediatric Orthopaedic Society Hall of Fame

05-18-2022 (Akron, Ohio)

Dr. Dennis Weiner, an Akron Children’s Hospital pediatric orthopedic surgeon for 50 years, was posthumously selected for induction to the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (POSNA) Hall of Fame during the society’s annual conference last week. 

“Dr. Weiner’s focused vision for and commitment to excellence in the specialization of pediatric orthopedic care has created a wonderful legacy at Akron Children's Hospital,” said Dr. Todd Ritzman, chairman of the Orthopedics Department at Akron Children’s Hospital. 

“Dr. Weiner was instrumental in growing Akron Children's Hospital’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery from a singular surgeon to 13 surgeons and 12 advanced practitioners,” Ritzman added. “Quite frankly, the tenacity and longevity of Dr. Weiner’s vision for excellence is primarily responsible for this remarkable growth and history.” 

During his half-century of service and leadership at Akron Children’s, Dr. Weiner served in multiple leadership roles, including director of research, department chair (32-year tenure), director of the Regional Skeletal Dysplasia Center, and medical director of the BioInnovation Institute of Akron. Dr. Weiner passed away June 19, 2021 at the age of 82. 

The POSNA Hall of Fame provides an enduring history to honor those POSNA members who have displayed dedication to the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America, including teaching and mentoring, studying musculoskeletal conditions in children and caring for children with musculoskeletal conditions. Nominations for members are taken each fall and selected by an awards committee and members of the Hall of Fame.
