Dr. Mohit Bhandari, a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon whose research has profoundly changed the practice of orthopedic medicine, was honoured with the Order of Ontario this week.

Bhandari, a professor of surgery of the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine, is a leader in intimate partner violence prevention. He has worked extensively to educate his colleagues on how to identify the physical signs and to support victims.

He was among 25 appointees to Ontario's highest honour for individual excellence and achievement invested by Lieutenant Governor Ontario David C. Onley at Queen’s Park on Jan. 22.

"Our province is richer for the contributions of these distinguished individuals. Through drive and determination they have pushed boundaries and serve as truly outstanding examples for all Ontarians," said Onley.
