The decades following World War II produced phenomenal advances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, but none were more spectacular than the development of cardiac surgery. Canadians were in the forefront, led by Dr. Wilfred Gordon "Bill" Bigelow, an innovative surgeon-scientist at Toronto General Hospital who created a pathbreaking technique of cooling the body to allow open-heart surgery and also helped develop an early pacemaker. Considered the father of cardiovascular surgery in Canada, Dr. Bigelow has received many awards for his contribution to medicine, including the Order of Canada in 1981 and his 1997 induction into the Medical Hall of Fame.
