Dr. Aruyaru, Associate Editor AAS, has been identified as a trail blazer in his clinical work by his training institution. In addition, his contribution to the improvement of health care, within and without the country, through publishing and advocacy has been recognized.
In this article he cites the milestones made by the Annals of African Surgery over the past years as well as his contribution to the same. He continues to emphasise the importance of publishing the data clinicians collect over time, “As an editor, I feel there is so much data lying in our various physical and electronic medical repositories. More often, a senior clinician will be at ease to mention some particular anecdotal observations in their practice that are not in conformity with what we read in acclaimed literature. Sounds familiar?”
