In Memoriam

Professor Maurice Edmund Müller. 1918 – 2009

On May 10, 2009, in his 92nd year, Maurice Müller died peacefully, in the presence of his family in Bern, Switzerland.

Named “The Orthpaedic Surgeon of the Century” by SICOT in recognition of his unique talents and contributions to science, Professor Müller’s influence on orthopaedics was revolutionary. From his pioneering development of internal fracture fixation to the establishment of the AO, total hip arthroplasty and fracture classification system, his vision has become the standard for orthopaedic surgeons of today.

He leaves a legacy that is shared by all practicing orthopaedic surgeons everywhere. His contribution to the development of the principles and the devices for internal fixation and to the evolution of prosthetic hip implants has forever changed modern orthopeadics around the world.

The Board of Directors or the M.E. Müller Foundation of North America and Müller Fellows in the United States and Canada who were directly inspired by Professor Müller’s presence and teachings, offer their sympathies to his family and colleagues.
