Show Notes

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, Marc and Mo explore both the challenges and opportunities that have risen from the new abundance of online information and what this means for our pursuit of evidence-based medicine in surgery.

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. You can contact us through our respective websites (MyOrthoEvidence and JBJS). We intend on having a mailbag portion of the show where we answer questions posed by our listeners.

Talking Points:

  • Traditional textbooks and journal articles in digital form look and operate similar to the printed version
  • Application of machine learning to scientific research and clinical practice
  • Future scientific paper: computational notebooks creating opportunity for a "living journal”
  • Point-of-care, data-driven tools of the future
