SUNY Upstate hosts commemorative exhibit honoring orthopedic surgeons’ contributions to World War II

SYRACUSE, N.Y.- SUNY Upstate Medical University will host Legacy of Heroes, an award-winning exhibit and film commemorating the contributions of orthopedic surgeons in World War II, Feb. 3 through 5 at the Institute of Human Performance, 505 Irving Ave., Syracuse. Exhibit hours are Feb. 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Feb. 4, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Feb. 5, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The multimedia exhibit, a project of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, tells the courageous, inspiring and sometimes heartbreaking stories of orthopedic surgeons who served in World War II.

“The significance of this exhibit is not only that it provides us with a great history of World War II, but it also gives a historical perspective on the role orthopedic surgery played in the war,” said Stephen Albanese, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Jack Prior, M.D., of Manlius, who served in the Battle of the Bulge as a battalion surgeon, will provide the physician’s perspective on war at the opening reception Feb. 3 at 10 a.m.
