The development of "The Orthopaedic"

The history and development of the RJ and AH Orthopaedic Hospital, Gobowen.

David Adams will talk about some of the people in history who were crucial in the development of this field. Like Dame Agnes Hunt and her colleague Emily Goodford who together established a Convalescent Home for Children and Sir Robert Jones who publicised the Thomas splint which saved countless lives in the First World War. Sir Robert Jones was also responsible for developing orthopaedics as a separate specialty. Up until then it had been a part of General Medicine.
