Robotics in Orthopaedics

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Drs. Bhandari and Swionkowski discuss the future of robotics in orthopaedic surgery. Why all of the investment? What are the costs vs. benefits? How about the marketing incentives for institutions? Is there a promise of better outcomes?  If you have any comments, questions, or topics you would like us to cover, please feel free to reach out so we can read your messages and possibly answer your questions during the next episode of OrthoJOE. Talking Points: Facts about robotics in the medical industry Why robotics? Are we fixing the problem? What is the long-term value of robotics in surgery? Expertise bias in robotics Is the initial cost going to be outweighed quickly? Two-year outcome study Quicker, less invasive surgeries? Marketing using the latest technology Robotics as an enabler technology that allows us to rethink our views on surgery What is needed in order to integrate and use robots well  Resources/Links: “Robotic-Assisted Total Hip Arthroplasty: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials,” OrthoEvidence  “Robotic Technology in Orthopaedic Surgery,” JBJS.org  “Robotic-Assisted Pedicle Screw Placement During Spine Surgery,” JBJS.org  The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery Orthoevidence ...

Machine-Learning Algorithms in Orthopaedics

In this thought-provoking episode, Marc and Mo highlight a recent single-center study on the use of machine-learning algorithms in orthopaedics and use it as a springboard into a larger discussion of the inherent opportunities and challenges that have always been associated the ongoing process of scientific exploration into new domains, with a focus on the intriguing question: “Is there a day in the future when clinical decision-making will be reduced to these machine-learning algorithms?”  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected]   Links: Kunze KN, Polce EM, Clapp I, Nwachukwu BU, Chahla J, Nho SJ.

Innovation (with special guest Ed Harvey)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Ed Harvey (tenured professor at McGill University and Past-President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association) in a lively discussion on the topic of innovation in the field of orthopaedic surgery. The discussion touches on a number of related questions: Invention is often confused with innovation. What is the difference?  What is the phenotype of a surgeon-innovator, and how does such an individual differ from a surgeon-scientist or surgeon-educator? What are the necessary skills and qualities of the surgeon-innovator? How can we identify individuals with these skills, and how can we motivate individuals to develop them? Are people born with these skills, and can these skills be taught?  When is the right time to innovate? Are you ever too young or too old to innovate? How does the concept of value relate to the concept of innovation? What are the roles of the “3 Ps” (Patient, Physician, and Payor) in achieving commercialization? How does a surgeon-innovator define “success”?  Why is it important to have an efficient and effective team during the commercialization process? How does the team change over time? What kind of expertise is needed to navigate the regulatory issues related to innovation? What are investors and venture capitalists (VCs) ultimately looking for when evaluating an invention?  OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected] Links: Schiffman CJ, Prabhakar P, ...
