Sir Robert Jones (1961)

Jones is considered a father of orthopedic surgery in Britain. He was an early proponent of the use of radiography in orthopedics. He discovered so-called Jones fracture. It is a break between the base and middle part of the fifth metatarsal of the foot. It may occur when changing direction while the heel is off the ground such in dancing, tennis, or basketball.
