Additional information

A Note from the Editor-in-Chief: While Ms. Safak Pavey is extremely well known in Turkey, where she currently serves as a Member of Parliament representing Istanbul, she is less well known outside of Europe. This is too bad. Her passion for equality, her values as a legislator, her leadership as an activist, and her understanding as a patient who experienced a terrible trauma make Ms. Pavey a person whose important story should be told and retold. The Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons ® was fortunate to hear her story firsthand at the 2013 meeting in Istanbul, and we felt it worth sharing as part of this symposium on Recent Advances in Amputation Surgery and Amputee Care.

The author certifies that she, or any members of her immediate family, has no commercial associations (eg, consultancies, stock ownership, equity interest, patent/licensing arrangements, etc) that might pose a conflict of interest in connection with the submitted article.
