Topeka, Kansas: Humerus Osteopathic Statue

We, too, didn't know what to make of this sculpture. It's Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, founder of the "wellness" doctrine of Osteopathic medicine -- a serious man, holding a humerus bone.

Humerus Osteopathic Statue Is Back

The formerly missing bronze sculpture of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, M.D. has been returned to its garden and is available to be enjoyed by the public once again. The bust is located in the small bricked courtyard next to the Kansas Osteopathic Association building in Topeka. It's still a humorous site to bone up on Osteopathic philosophy!

Humerus Osteopathic Statue

Drove by, but the statue was not out. There is a lovely garden area all around the mount the statue would have been on, but no bust. The locally famous Giant Wren is right down the road though, and it was there.

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and bone.

Humerus Osteopathic Statue

A little known bronze sculpture of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, M.D. resides in a small well groomed bricked courtyard next to the Kansas Osteopathic Association building in Topeka. The serious well groomed doctor is posed holding a Humerus bone in his right hand. The statue honors his founding the "wellness" philosophy of Osteopathic medicine in 1874. Doctor Still developed a holistic approach to the prevention and diagnosis of disease and injury by treating the entire body's bones, muscles, nerves and organs.

This is a humorous site to bone up on Osteopathic philosophy!
