He was the original chair of the SKI Advisory Council.
John is an international authority on complex surgical hip reconstruction in children and adolescents. He has conducted thousands of surgical procedures, and has trained hundreds of residents and fellows. He has published extensively in his area of expertise, and has more than 100 publications (peer reviewed, invited and book chapters) focused on childhood and young adult hip deformity and disease. From 2009 through 2013, he was Guest Speaker or Visiting Professor to the national specialty organization or universities in many regions around the world including: US, UK, Australia, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Portugal, China, and Middle East.
After completion of his surgical education in Saskatoon, Montreal, Toronto and Oxford, U.K., John joined the Department of Surgery (Orthopaedics) at the University of Saskatoon (UofS) in Canada. He later became Head of Orthopaedic Surgery, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery at the UofS and Head of the Department of Surgery at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon.
In 1988, John assumed the position of Head of the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at the The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), and in 1992 was appointed the Colonel R.S. McLaughlin Professor and Chair, Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto (UofT). In January 1995, he was appointed Surgeon-in-Chief at SickKids. Following completion of his tenure in these positions, he served as Associate Dean, Clinical Affairs, at the Faculty of Medicine at UofT, as well as Associate Vice-Provost until 2007.
In 2006, John was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada for his outstanding contributions to Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery in Canada and beyond. He was named one of '100 Alumni of Influence' for the centennial of UofS in 2007. In 2012, he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for "dedicated service to peers, community and Canada". In June 2014, John received an honourary Doctor of Laws from UofS.
