Category: News

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Dr. James McAuley.  The Anderson Clinic was very lucky to have him as a partner in our joint replacement practice from 1997-2006.  He was a great teacher and asset to our fellowship program.  We continue to have patients ask about him to this day.  We miss him and his generous heart greatly!

James Patrick McAuley, MD FRCSC – Passed away at home surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, December 28th, 2017, after a heroic and dignified battle against a brain tumor. Adoring husband to his wife Diane of 36 years. Loving father to Erin (Mark) and Alexander (Lauren). Proud grandfather of Patrick and Sebastian. Cherished friend of his patients and colleagues throughout the world. Jim was a singularly talented and dedicated orthopaedic surgeon who approached the care of his patients with the same love and kindness with which he treated all those he came across. Beyond being a world class surgeon, his family was everything to him and he never let them forget it. A true gentleman in the purest sense of the word, and a devout Catholic, he embodied the virtues of compassion and gentleness. May he rest in the peace he so richly deserves.
