There's something called "Heberden's nodes" found in Distal Interphalangeal Joints in Osteoarthritis. Shouldn't it be mentioned in the article? Ehudzel 22:44, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
Heberden is one of the most important early physicians and I believe this article needs some attention. For a start, a paragraph at the beginning should be dedicated to a summary of his achievements: regarding Jennings and smallpox innoculation, dealings with George Washington and the American revolution, "Commenaries of the History and Cure of Diseases" about Angina pectoris, early descriptions of ischemic heart disease, etc, etc, etc. His importance to modern medicine is vastly unclear from this article.
