Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo provide their predictions for scholarly publication trends in 2022, including the use of algorithms to solve complex problems, innovations in rehabilitative strategies, “side hustles” for researchers and surgeons, the generational impact in orthopaedic education, the impact of patient mental health and personality on the process of care, a greater focus on “what really matters” in life, and the musculoskeletal implications of Long COVID.

Orthobiologics in Orthopaedics: Essential Questions

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss a number of intriguing questions related to the use of orthobiologics in orthopaedics: How do we set standards for novel biologics? How do we decide what works and what doesn’t? What filter should be used to determine which studies get published? Ultimately, we need to know how these materials are prepared and what is actually in them before we can evaluate their effect on patients. Answering these questions is essential work in order for us to make advances in this field.

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 ...

Rehabilitation Strategies: Evidence is the Oasis

In this episode, Marc and Mo discuss the importance of breaking down silos and collaborating with non-surgeon colleagues in the musculoskeletal arena (PTs, OTs, physiatrists) to develop evidence-based recommendations on rehabilitation strategies for the purpose of improving patient outcomes.
