Mr Brian Otto was the most humane orthopedic surgeon. I was sent to Mr Otto in 2003 when I unfortunately had fallen off our boat in the marina onto the concrete walkway and severely damaged my sciatic nerve.
His assurances that I would get better and with his help, excluding an operation, I did. I was most grateful.
Recently I had another minor accident which has resulted in the same type of nerve pain. I went online to look for Mr Otto but unfortunately I discovered he had passed on. Such a terrible loss. My condolences to his family. Ann Empson

In 1977, as an orthopedic registrar I was transferred from Dunedin to Middlemore Hospital and placed to work under Brian Otto. He had recently returned from Australia where he studied the modern comprehensive care of paraplegia under Sir George Bedbrook.His humanity and passion in caring for these patients, along with a lot of hard work, led to the setting up of a national paraplegic center in Auckland. I remember observing that Brian did most of the work, others got the public recognition!!
Looking back I realise how fortunate I was to have Brian as a mentor at that stage in my orthopedic career.The service was busy and we worked long hours but Brian was a constant source of advice and encouragement.He was also an excellent technical orthopedic surgeon.
My condolences go to his family , friends and colleagues.
