"Tinker Toys" by John E Fortune, MD, is a sculpture of a synthetic
femur with multiple simulated fractures, reconstructed using
external fixation frames made from five different materials:
stainless steel, titanium, carbon fiber, aluminum, and tinker toys.

Teresa Medical Center in San Jose, CA. His various creative outlets
include photography and building three-dimensional "fixation
construct" models using surplus (used) orthopaedic implants. His work has
