Dr. David P. Green receives the BCMS Golden Aesculapius Award for Lifetime of Distinguished Service


Dr. David P. Green, one of the founders of The Hand Center of San Antonio, has been honored by the Bexar County Medical Society with its Golden Aesculapius Lifetime Service Award.

In 1980, the Bexar County Medical Society (BCMS) established the Golden Aesculapius Award as its highest honor, recognizing a lifetime of distinguished service by a BCMS member to its patients and the profession.  The award is not given annually but only upon the occasion of nomination and confirmation of distinguished service.

A native Texan from El Paso, Dr. Green has been practicing orthopaedic medicine specializing in the upper extremity in San Antonio for 49 years.  He is a past president of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and in 1997 was named the Distinguished Alumnus of his own residency training program, The New York Orthopaedic Hospital.  He was also named the 2016 Distinguished Alumnus of his alma mater, Baylor College of Medicine.
