Tom Joseph 2021
Dr. Tom Joseph, of Camden Bone & Joint, treated victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York City as a senior resident at the city’s Bellevue Hospital.Among those he treated were New York Port Authority police officers William Jimeno and John McLaughlin, the subject of Oliver Stone’s 2006 movie, World Trade Center. Twenty years later, Joseph recalls the 31 hours he spent on call that day working on around 50 patients who had suffered injuries and trying to make sense of what happened. (Martin L. Cahn/C-I)
