The Tree of Andry -
Symbol of Orthopaedics
since the early 1700’s


The word Orthopaedia was originally used to mean the art of correcting and preventing deformities in children.

The analogy of the crooked tree tied to a strong post reflects the basis of our specialty: to correct deformities.

Welcome from our Department Director,
James R. Ficke, M.D.

Greetings and welcome to the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery! As we move into our next 100 years of resident education, we are looking forward to offering contemporary education models for medical students, residents and fellows while maintaining the absolute highest patient care. Johns Hopkins’ first Orthopaedic Surgeon, William Baer, who trained under Professor William Halsted made a commitment to the highest quality education, and we strive to continue this tradition. This past year has been excellent, with growth in extremely qualified people in every clinical division as well as our research team.
 
On a personal note, I am most proud to be a part of Johns Hopkins Orthopaedic Surgery, and after one year as Director, I assure you we are accelerating enthusiastically into this new chapter in our second centennial. We are now offering CME to all attendees of our weekly Grand Rounds sessions, held in our Department Conference Room. Additionally, we are very pleased to have 7 named formal lectureships. I encourage you to contact myself or any of our faculty with questions or suggestions as we seek to care or teach about Musculoskeletal Conditions.

A Special Gift:
Johns Hopkins, Who Was He?

The original gift from our founder Johns Hopkins in 1873 was, at that time, the largest philanthropic bequest in U.S. history.

It enabled our institution to be free of outside influences from both church and state, and it supported the creation of the climate of innovation for which we are known.
