|INSIDE THE STMS|
By Dr. Stephan Esser
As Dickens wrote," It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Even as our organization grows and flourishes it is with great sadness we mark the passing of Javier Maquirrian, MD. Please review the following from Neeru Jayanthi, MD our president.
"The STMS family has lost one of its own. It is with a very heavy heart that we announce that our esteemed and beloved immediate Past President and friend Dr. Javier Maquirrian has passed away after a several year struggle with a brain tumor.
Many of you knew him to be an amazing inspiration to STMS and tennis medicine, but he was also an amazing father, husband and physician. He was the chief doctor for the Argentinian Tennis Federation, a Davis Cup physician, a philanthropist, an orthopaedic surgeon, a researcher, an author, the president of STMS from 2011-2015 as well as the editor-in-chief of the journal during that time. We will find the appropriate way to honor him for his years of dedicated service to STMS and the tennis medicine world. Please keep his family in your thoughts. To read more about his legacy, please see the attached translated dedication which appeared in an Argentine publication.
His passion for tennis medicine will live on in the work of STMS and in those of us who continue to serve the tennis athlete across the globe. His passing is a reminder of how quickly our time may go and what a blessing each and every day of health is.
May we as an organization and each of us as individuals re-commit ourselves to embracing each day as an opportunity to serve others and to impact the world around us for good.
Wishing you nothing but Aces!
