Royal recognition for former RNOH surgeon
Mr Cannon said: “I am absolutely over the moon. This is recognition of all the hard work and development that has been achieved at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) since my appointment in 1988 and for the charitable work of SCAT Bone Cancer Trust including both research and patient support.”
National Director for Clinical Quality and Efficiency at the Dept. of Health and trustee of SCAT, Professor Tim Briggs said: “We are delighted that Steve Cannon has been recognised for his contribution to orthopaedics at both a national and international level.
“He has been a pioneer in orthopaedic oncology and a campaigner as well as chairman of SCAT, the bone cancer charity. Through his efforts, many patients have both benefited from his surgical knowledge and expertise as well as help from SCAT to improve the quality of their lives.”
Chairman of RNOH, Prof Anthony Goldstone, said: “The Board of the RNOH is delighted to note the award of the MBE to Mr Steve Cannon. We are proud to have him as an alumnus and the award is nothing less than a recognition of everything he has done for the hospital and the Charity. We are truly proud of him.”
