TSRHC True Classics!

Papers by our own Tony Herring, Steve Richards, Mauricio Delgado and Richard Browne are included in the list of "100 Classic Papers of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery" released today in the latest issue of Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. According to the analysis, Dr. Herring's article from 1992 called "The lateral pillar classification of Legg-Calve-Perthes disease" was number 46 in the list, cited 142 times. Dr. Herring's name is the only one that actually shows up in the list since it includes only first authors, but Dr. Browne was a co-author.

However, looking closer reveals that a paper by Dr. Delgado stands at number 39 -- "Recommendations on the use of botulinum toxin type A in the management of cerebral palsy" published in 2000. In 40th place is a 1993 paper by Dr. Richards called "Acute slipped capital femoral epiphysis: the importance of physeal stability."

Congratulations on being a true "classic"!
