Dr. James Patrick McAuley  passed away on Thursday, Dec. 28, 2017 after a heroic and dignified battle against a brain tumour.
Dr. McAuley was a dedicated orthopaedic surgeon and member of the Bone and Joint Institute, who joined the Division of Orthopedic surgery in 2006 and practiced within the arthroplasty group at University Hospital. Dr. McAuley was a highly accomplished surgeon, teacher, researcher and colleague. He was adored by both his patients and those that he mentored over an almost 30-year career that also spanned positions in Virginia and Ottawa. Dr. McAuley absolutely loved his role as a clinician, surgeon, and teacher and was tirelessly dedicated and passionate in those commitments. Dr. McAuley was promoted to full Professor in the Department of Surgery, recognizing his significant academic contributions and international renown in the field of total hip and knee replacement surgery.
Our sincere condolences go to his wife Diane, his two children Erin and Alexander, and all of his family, friends and colleagues around the world.
