“Orthopaedia” by Nicolas Andry

Illustration from “Orthopaedia” by Nicolas Andry (translated into English, 1743), advocating a splinting method “for recovering the Shape of the Leg, as is used for making straight the crooked Trunk of a young Tree.” 

Russell Hibbs

Russell Hibbs (1869-1932) was the pioneer of spinal fusion in an era of rampant tuberculosis and poliomyelitis.  The Scoliosis Research Society honors his name with an annual research award (which, by some miracle, I won, along with my great mentor Marc Asher).  I still have a Hibbs retractor in my spine trays. 

Dr. Dale Dalenberg is a physician employee at AdventHealth Ottawa, member of the American College of Legal Medicine, a member of The North American Spine Society (NASS), and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).
