Taylor Orthopedics Over the Years...

Through much of its early history, Taylor Hospital didn’t have an official orthopedics department. In the early 20th century, orthopedics was still a young specialty.

In Taylor’s early years, surgeons William Erb Sr, M.D. and Alan Hume, M.D. handled all trauma cases, including fractures. Orthopedics evolved dramatically by the end of the century, with the invention of hip prostheses, total joint replacements and arthroscopic techniques. Harry Forbes, M.D., an orthopaedist, joined the staff around 1950. A decade later, Howard Dalrymple, M.D. assumed the chair of Orthopedics and developed the department. In 1987, Stuart Gordon, M.D. came to the hospital and, by all accounts, built Taylor orthopedics to the state-of-the-art department it is in 2010. Today, Dr. Gordon and Jeffrey Malumed, M.D., serve as co-chiefs of the Section of Orthopedics at Taylor Hospital. Dr. Malumed is also president of Premier Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, the largest network of orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine physicians in the county.
