R.I.P. Prof. Dr. Erik Hjørting-Hansen
The international SORG community shares the sad news of the passing of Prof. em. Erik Hjørting-Hansen, former head of the Department of Dental, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Rigshospitalet and the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at School of Dental Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
Erik was an early member of the SORG founding council from 1989 and a dedicated believer in the SORG philosophy of stable dynamic elastic mini-plate osteosynthesis, helping to promote this principal internationally in many courses and symposia. When he relinquished his position as Chair in the OMF Department at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, he also decided to retire from our association. Our thoughts are with Erik’s family.
SORG will always be grateful for Erik's outstanding professionalism, friendship and excellent contributions to the SORG spirit.
