The Canadian Orthopaedic Association is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Dr. Cy Frank on Thursday, March 5.
Dr. Frank was a true leader and spent more than three decades devoting his life to improving health outcomes. His many contributions to medicine as a surgeon, teacher, mentor, world-renowned researcher and advocate for positive change in public health care have profoundly impacted the lives of Canadians. His role in the Canadian health-care sector has benefited people from coast-to-coast and will have longstanding impact for generations to come.
Previously, Dr. Frank held the positions of President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation and Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society. He was awarded an Order of Canada last year for his contributions to advancing orthopedic health care services in Alberta, and for his scientific contributions to bone and joint repair research.
Our condolences are extended to his family, many friends and colleagues.
“I am inspired by what the future holds for orthopaedics and how innovation can continue to progress and evolve to better serve the citizens of this great country” – Cy Frank
