The passing of Dr. Pao Galono -- A world-renown anatomist, researcher, educator, and member of Pitt adjunct faculty

It is with great sadness that we learned that Dr. Pau Golanó passed away on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. A great surgeon, friend, and family member to all, he was well known for his irreplaceable skills to anatomical dissection and passion for education.

Dr. Golanó is Professor of Pathology and Experimental Therapeutics, Human Anatomy and Embryology Unit, at the University of Barcelona, and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He is a world famous surgical anatomist, photographer, and illustrator. His legacy, genius, and talents have blessed our very own in Pittsburgh. After visiting in the summer of 2008, he continued to collaborate with our Department and provided musculoskeletal anatomy lectures to our residents, fellows and medical students. In August 2011, he returned to Pittsburgh to participate in the Panther Global Summit as a Keynote Speaker. We are grateful to experience his genius and enthusiasm which have passed down to the residents and faculty of our institution.

A world-renowned surgical anatomist, Dr. Golanó was also a photographer and illustrator. His work helped to advance our field in many facets through beautiful dissection and anatomical teachings. In May 2014, Dr. Golanó was presented the Most Dedicated Individual ESSKA Member Award at the 16th ESSKA Congress in Amsterdam.

Visitation is being held on Thursday, July 24, at 1:00pm with the funeral ceremony on Friday, July 25, at 8:45am, at Tanatorio Les Corts, Avinguda de Joan XXIIIm 17-25, 08028 Barcelona, Spain (Tel +34 934 84 18 28).

Please take time out of your day to remember Dr. Golanó for what he has done for us and the beautiful person he was as an individual. He will truly be missed. Not only have we lost a brilliant surgical anatomist, we have lost a good friend. We convey our sincerest condolences to Celine and his family.
