Celebrating the 97th birthday of Max Landolt

The AO today celebrates the 97th birthday of Max Landolt. He attended the first AO Davos Courses in 1960 as a participant, representing his hospital, Stadtspital Waid. Coincidentally, Landolt was appointed senior physician at a young age, allowing him to take part in the first AO Davos Courses at just 35. At that time, course participation was limited to senior or chief physicians. His appointment as chief physician in 1967 was also his golden ticket to become an AO member.

Over the years, Landolt has dedicated thousands of hours to the AO, as an instructor at numerous AO courses and as an AO International employee after he retired as chief physician. In his role as an AO International employee, Landolt assigned and oversaw approximately 2,000 fellows in AO clinics all over the world.

Please join us in wishing him a fantastic birthday and another happy, healthy year.
