Mohit Bhandari, a professor of surgery with the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine and a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon, has been named to the Hamilton Gallery of Distinction.

Arriving from India as a young child in 1970, 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 the top science undergraduate student at McMaster, later graduating as one of the world's most recognized young trauma surgeons.

As a Canada Research Chair in Evidence-Based Orthopedic Surgery and a University Scholar at McMaster, he advocates for domestic violence victims, ensuring health care providers spot associated orthopaedic injuries. He leads global studies improving treatment of severe trauma victims in India, China and Africa.

The other 2015 inductees are Terry Yates, Todd Bender, Jack Clifford McFarland, Michael and Jane Schwenger, and Patricia Filer (posthumous).

The portraits and biographies of all inductees are featured in the Gallery of Distinction display on the third floor of the Hamilton Central Library.
