3. Hip Joint—pathology. WE 2004045358
This second edition remains dedicated to my family, Donna, Allison, and Ellen, and to the two finest surgeons that I have known, Benjamin Franklin Byrd, Jr., and James Reuben Andrews.
My father, B.F. Byrd, Jr., has dedicated his entire life to fighting cancer, a much more admirable pursuit than anything I will do. He detoured only briefly from this battle to champion another cause, as a highly decorated medical officer overseeing the care of wounded from Normandy Beach through the fields of Europe. Through his lifelong example, he has shown me what being a physician is all about. As he put it, "a surgeon is just a regular doctor, with a few special skills."
Dr. Andrews taught me the art and the philosophy of sports medicine. He also taught me much about how to treat patients as people and, fortunately, he shared with me a few of his remarkable surgical skills. Per
haps more importantly, through his example, he instilled in me the burning desire to make the most of my abilities.
