Issue Two, Summer 2021 »
I am excited to share the latest news and innovations from Stanford Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.
This issue features innovations in annular closure as well as advancements in hip arthroscopy. We will take a look at the latest clinical research on the use of platelet-rich plasma for knee osteoarthritis. We'll also share a new look at total ankle replacement and bunion surgery, and the latest on suture button suspensionplasty (SBS) as a game changer for thumb arthritis.
I’d also recommend reviewing the Spine Care Landmark Reading List from the North American Spine Society (NASS). The reading list includes 19 surgical and 20 medical spine care articles that NASS deems essential to the education of residents and fellows in orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, physiatry, anesthesia, and pain management.
I hope you find these articles of interest, and I encourage you to sign up to receive future colleague communications.
Lastly, I would like to personally congratulate Serena Hu, MD as the president of the American Orthopaedic Association (AOA) and on her upcoming appointment as president elect of the Scoliosis Research Society in September. Dr. Hu serves as the first female president for both organizations. Dr. Hu is a Stanford Medicine professor and the chief of spine for the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
