JAFFE--Fredrick, M.D. The members of the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases Department of Orthopaedic Surgery mourn the untimely passing of our valued friend and colleague, Dr. Fredrick F. Jaffe. Dr. Jaffe was an honored member of our department for 44 years, as a resident, faculty member, and Director of the Division of Adult Reconstructive Surgery. He was an outstanding clinician, gifted surgeon and dedicated educator. Thousands of patients have benefited from the hip and knee replacement surgery he performed, restoring productive and pain free lives. He contributed to the education of scores of orthopaedic residents, who now practice the principles he taught. He leaves a saddened hospital community with a profound void. His many years of dedicated work at the Hospital for Joint Diseases touched the lives of an infinite number of people. We grieve his passing as we celebrate his exemplary life and extend our heart-felt sympathy to his wife, Dr. Deborah Moody; his sons, David and Harry; his daughters-in-law, Leslie and Andrea and his grandchildren Zachary, Aria and Lila. Joseph D. Zuckerman M.D., Chair William L. Jaffe, M.D. Joseph A. Bosco, M.D. Kenneth A Egol, Vice Chairs, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, NYU Langone Medical Center
