Dr. Hugh M. Bryan III and his wife, Dr. Barbara Allison-Bryan, received the Clarence A. Holland Award from the Medical Society of Virginia during its annual meeting in Norfolk on Oct. 20-22.

The award is presented each year to Virginia physicians for outstanding contributions promoting the art and science of medicine and the advancement of public health through political service, a release stated.

Both physicians practice in Gloucester with Riverside Health System.

Bryan is an orthopedic surgeon with more than two decades of experience. A release said he was the first surgeon in Virginia to use MRI-designed patient specific guides for knee replacement. He received the Virginia Orthopedic Society Career Award in 2013, it said.

Earlier, after completing the American College of Sports Medicine’s Team Physician course, Dr. Bryan served as the team physician at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, New York, in 2000. He was elected to the Gloucester High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2011 as a result of his service as team physician, a role he also fills at Mathews High School and Christchurch School.
