Show Notes

Welcome to the OrthoJOE podcast with Dr. Marc Swiontkowski and Dr. Mohit Bhandari. In this episode of OrthoJOE, we’ll be talking about the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery (JBJS) as well as Orthoevidence, our two publications which both have the goals of synthesizing information and making it digestible for the public and professionals in the industry. Today we’re also talking about the impact of COVID-19 on orthopaedic surgery, the speed at which information was disseminated, as well as the publishing standards on this information as it was released to the public. 

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 history and mission statement for Orthoevidence
  • The early days of COVID-19
  • Infodemic
  • The speed at which information was disseminated 
  • How publishing standards have evolved 
  • Preprint servers and associated use during crisis

JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques: Celebrating 10 Years of Innovation (with special guest Ed Cheng)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Ed Cheng, Editor of JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques, in celebrating the 10-year history of the launch of JBJS’s innovative peer-reviewed video journal, with a focus on the overlap between the art and science of surgery and how audio-video communication can be used as an effective learning tool to “get inside the mind” of the master surgeon.

What’s Important: Arts & Humanities (with special guest Bob Schenck)

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Bob Schenck, MD (JBJS Deputy Editor for Arts and Humanities) in an inspiring and stimulating discussion of their shared vision for the newest section of the JBJS Orthopaedic Forum known as “What’s Important: Arts & Humanities,” with an emphasis on the value of maintaining a healthy work-life balance, the trickle-down benefits of exploring and cultivating one’s creative side, and the relationship between art and wellness.   OrthoJOE Mailbag: feedback, comments, and suggestions from our audience can be sent to [email protected]     Links:   Bhandari M.

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 ...
