In a tribute to the heroes who have served their countries in wars throughout the world, this exhibition features art celebrating the strength and spirit of injured troops, wounded civilians, and their families, as well as the commitment of the orthopaedic surgeons who assist them on their journey to recovery.
Wounded in Action includes original works of art showing a different side of war — war-related loss of limbs and other musculoskeletal wounds — and the increasingly pivotal role orthopaedic surgeons play in the lives of war-related injury patients. Artists include military personnel who live with orthopaedic injuries, family members who helped them through their recovery process, and orthopaedic surgeons who treat wounded military and civilians.
