Dr. Srinivas Susarla, currently a resident in the MGH Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program, was a recipient of the 2010 Resident Research Award presented by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (AAOMS).  The award was for a paper entitled "Cephalometric Measurement of Upper Airway Length Correlates with the Presence and Severity of Obstructive Sleep Apnea".  This paper was co-authored by Dr. Zack Abramson, Dr. Thomas Dodson and Dr. Leonard Kaban, all also from MGH.

In presenting this award, AAOMS emphasized "the superior standards of research and clinical application demonstrated throughout your paper echo our belief that excellence and continuing education in the area of oral and maxillofacial surgery is most critical to providing patient care through reliable, safe, and clinically documented treatment methods."

The award was presented during the Opening Ceremonies of the 92nd AAOMS Annual Scientific Meeting.  Dr. Susarla, who was completing a rotation in General Surgery, was able to appear in Chicago to accept his award.
