Professor Stephen Copeland

Stephen Copeland 1946-2015

It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that Stephen Copeland passed away on Friday 10th April. On behalf of the academic department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery at the University of Dundee, I would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Professor Copeland's family, friends and the entire orthopaedic community.

“It is hard to believe that Steve has gone!” stated Professor Abboud. “It was only six months ago when he was with us in Dundee full of smiles and happiness sharing his vast experience and knowledge with our MCh (Orth) students. Steve will be missed but he will live forever for what he has given the orthopaedic world with his innovative inventions.”

A condolence page has been created on the British Elbow & Shoulder Society website for messages to be posted.
