Dear Pat and family, I was stunned to hear of Davids passing, I learned of this yesterday and it's taken a day to really settle in. Since then I've been remembering my time on his total joint rotation as a young orthopedic resident and how much I learned and enjoyed working with him. Today while performing a total knee, I found myself doing the procedure just as he taught me those many years ago and giving encouragement to my assistants just as he did for me. David was an top surgeon, excellent teacher and he deeply cared. He had a hugely positive influence on me and countless others. What more can be said for a man. God Bless you and your family through this difficult time.
