The 11th of January marks the 205th anniversary of the birth of Sir James Paget, surgeon to Queen Victoria, and one of the most respected surgeons and pathologists of his time. His name was given to Paget’s disease and the Paget’s Association is proud to have Sir James Paget’s great, great grandson, Sir Henry Paget, as a Patron. In an interview for the Paget’s Awareness Day, he said, ‘We must relieve the suffering of those who are not currently receiving the help they need’.
Although there has been progress in alleviating the effects of Paget’s disease, much more remains to be done. The Paget’s Association believes that correct diagnosis is the key, as the condition often goes undetected until complications such as fracture, deafness and bone deformity have already occurred.
Members of the Paget’s Association are getting involved on the 11th January by wearing blue and green, the Association’s colours, to show support and to help raise awareness of what can be a devastating disease. Please join us in doing the same.
