MacOrtho extends their hearty congratulations to Dr. Mohit Bhandari on receiving the prestigious Hamilton Gallery of Distinction Award.
The Hamilton Gallery of Distinction was founded in 1984 as a 'Hamilton Home-coming' project. Its purpose is to permanently recognize outstanding Hamilton citizens, past and present, who have made significant contributions towards the betterment of our community.
The first 25 years of the Gallery, is located in the Hamilton Convention Centre, and displays a portrait of each inductee and is a permanent record and acknowledgement of the outstanding achievements of these very special people.
Arriving from India as a young child in 1970, Mohit Bhandari committed to his chosen hometown of Hamilton at an early age. Named the best student at Barton Secondary School, he went on to be top science undergraduate student at McMaster, later graduating as one of the world's most recognized young trauma surgeons. As a Canada Research Chair at McMaster he advocates for domestic violence victims, ensuring healthcare providers spot associated orthopaedic injuries. He leads global studies improving treatment of severe trauma victims in India, China, and Africa.
