Lyndon Mason has been awarded the prestigious Hunterian Professorship this year by the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Hunterian Professors are invited to give the annual Hunterian Lecture on their field of specialism and chosen research. Lyndon has been awarded for his work on ankle fractures, specifically on the posterior malleolar fracture, and will deliver his Hunterian lecture at the British Orthopaedic Association this September in Birmingham.
The Hunterian Professorship is named after the pioneering surgeon scientist John Hunter, and has been awarded annually by the Royal College of Surgeons of England since 1810. The Hunterian Lecture is awarded in recognition of a significant contribution to surgical, an aesthetic, or dental science. The work of candidates is carefully considered by an expert committee set up by Council, and this committee may well call upon experts in particular fields to referee specialist applications.
The Hunterian Professorship is considered to be one of the proudest traditional honours of the college bestowed to surgeons of eminence who have richly contributed to the field of surgery by original research or innovations. Since 1810, some of the most famous names in British surgery have given a Hunterian Lecture including Abernethy, Brodie, Treves, Spencer Wells, Bland Sutton, Trotter, James Paget, John Percival Pott, Moynihan, and Ara Darzi.
On receiving his Professorship, Lyndon Mason said: “This is a great honour for myself, but also our foot and ankle and University team. Without my colleagues Andy Molloy, Andrew Fisher, Lauren Fisher, Alistair Bond and numerous junior members this award would have not been possible.”
