Dr. Lewis A. Sayre (1820-1900)

Lewis Albert Sayre was an orthopedic surgeon. He was responsible for founding a medical college affiliated with Bellevue Hospital and there he became the first American to hold a chair as professor of orthopedic surgery. Sayre was an expert in treating spinal disorders; he invented the Sayre's jacket for abnormal curvature of the spine. His clubfoot shoe revolutionized the care of that disability. Sayre wrote books and lectured throughout Europe. As president of the American Medical Association in 1880 he convinced it to publish the "Journal of the AMA."
