Registrar gains recognition from British Orthopaedic Association
The Trust is delighted to announce that Specialist Registrar David Gordon has been awarded the Robert Jones Gold Medal and British Orthopaedic Association Prize for the most outstanding and original essay related to orthopaedics.
The essay entitled 'The Development of Bone Anchored Amputation Prostheses' detailed work which was performed at the Centre for Biomedical Engineering, based at RNOH. Mr Gordon, who has worked at the Trust since October 2009, received this prestigious award from David Adams of the British Orthopaedic Association, during a ceremony at the Trust in Stanmore.
Mr Gordon said: "I am honoured to receive this medal in recognition of the incredible hard work both myself and the team have put in, while developing the Intraosseous Transcutaneous Amputation Prosthesis (ITAP). ITAP is a revolution for amputees, which can dramatically improve their lives compared to traditional prostheses."
