/

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this second episode of OrthoJOE, we’ll be talking about our background in orthopedics, the purpose and mission for our podcast, and topics we cover in both of our publications including the use of antibiotic cement in arthroplasty, registry data, randomized trials, and trial numbers. We also discuss how different trials covering the same subject matter can yield such different results.

Dr. Marc Swiontkowski is an orthopedic trauma surgeon at the TRIA Orthopedic Center Bloomington. He is the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. He’s also an active researcher sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Mohit Bhandari is a professor and academic head of the division of Orthopedic Surgery at McMaster University in Ontario. He holds the Canadian Research Chair in evidence-based orthopedics.

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:

  • The use of antibiotic cement in arthroplasty
  • The biggest challenge in registry data
