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 ...

Distal Radial Fractures

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Marc and Mo discuss the RCTs (or randomized control trials) on common injuries like distal radial fractures. There is a huge amount of work involved in these. Should our focus be elsewhere? Is there such a thing as too many RCTs on the same topic?  Marc and Mo also talk about the data and their findings in recent scientific journals, including their own JBJS and Orthoevidence articles. "Cost-effectiveness studies'' are increasingly popular, with submissions doubling every 18 months. Orthopaedic surgeons must "own the bone" when treating distal radial fractures, which should be seen as a sentinel event for investigating overall bone health.  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. We are currently working on a better mailbag system. However, in the meantime, you can contact us through our respective websites (MyOrthoEvidence and JBJS).  Talking Points: RCTs on distal radial fractures The cost-effectiveness of certain studies Getting the appropriate dialogue going The upsides and downsides to “expertise-based trials” Novel angles for future trials The AOA’s “Own the Bone” Program and focusing on poor bone quality Resources/Links: Ludvigsen T, Matre K, Gudmundsdottir RS, Krukhaug Y, Dybvik ...

Trailblazing Team Physicians in Professional Sports, with special guests Clarence Shields and Joel Boyd

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guests Dr. Clarence Shields (the first African American team physician in the NFL) and Dr. Joel Boyd (the first African American team physician in the NHL) in an insightful discussion on the importance of increasing diversity in the field of orthopaedics in general and sports medicine in particular. What has changed over the years, and what challenges, barriers, and opportunities remain? How do we proactively attract underrepresented minorities into sports fellowships and careers in sports medicine? How do we move from optics to meaningful action?
