Obituary

Dr. Sinesio Misol passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 31, 2010, at his home. He was 69.

Dr. Misol was a native of Spain, where he was born on June 19, 1940.

He began his post-secondary education in Spain as an art student and then switched to medicine. He was awarded the prize for achieving the top academic record from the School of Medicine of Santiago de Compostella, an honor bestowed by Spain's then-head of state Generalissimo Francisco Franco.

After earning his medical degree in Spain, Dr. Misol completed his residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City under the tutelage of Dr. Ignacio Ponseti.

Dr. Misol joined Iowa Orthopaedic Center in Des Moines in 1972, where his practice as a specialist in hand surgery spanned three decades.

He continued to pursue art as a avocation, creating sculptures that were unique composites of cast-off orthopedic hardware.

Dr. Misol is survived by his wife, noted artist Mary Kline-Misol. They were married for 18 years and shared a passion for art, travel and animal rescue activities. Dr. Misol's survivors also include daughters, Helen Misol and Elizabeth Misol of Washington, D.C.; a son, Adrian Misol of New York City; and a sister, Tilly Misol, of Vigo, Spain.
