Bad to the Bone Golf Classic raises funds for orthopaedics

On June 8 an enthusiastic group of about 100 golfers attended the Bad to the Bone Golf Classic at Wooden Sticks golf club in Uxbridge, Ontario. Hosted by Sherry Bassin, owner of the Erie Otters hockey team, the event brought in a gross amount of over $86,000.

Bad to the Bone is a perennial favourite event of surgeons, industry leaders, and hockey players, drawn together for the camaraderie and golfing experience – as well as a chance to take home valuable items from the silent and live auctions. Read more on the COF's web site.

The truths we seek and the randomised trial in orthopaedic surgery
Bone & Joint Research
Research is, in essence, the search for the truth. We ask ourselves clinical questions and we seek to find truthful answers: is streptomycin effective in the management of pulmonary tuberculosis? Is the combination of conservative surgery and radiation as effective as the radical mastectomy in local control of breast cancer? These questions have been definitively answered and have had an impact on clinical practice to the extent that millions of lives have been saved, and the morbidity of the most common cancer surgery in women has plummeted.
