Dear CSS Colleagues: Enclosed is a link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4379813/ and the actual article from Mark Frankle. This article is entitled René Leriche and “Philosophy of Surgery” in the light of contemporary medical ethics. This is an interesting read and I think Mark’s purpose in posting it is to recognize the craft we seek to perfect and acknowledge our failures for our patients. “Every surgeon has a place he goes to pray A place of bitterness and r
Dear CSS Colleagues:
Please take a look at what I believe will be a true “Disruptive Innovation” in surgeon education. Immersive VR offers the opportunity for low cost and easy access to simulated surgical training as an alternative to expensive cadaver courses and need to travel to a lab. Danny Goel is the Founder and CEO of Precision OS which is the new entrant disruptor to surgical education.

Dear CSS Colleagues: Enclosed is a re-post of an important article I shared with you previously. I am including comments and articles from some of our members. It is important when poorly done research offers conclusions that are misleading, to show studies which give a contrary opinion. In this case, I think you would all agree that there is a value to experience and volume when one considers outcome of shoulder arthroplasty. Kind Regards, “JP” Warner MD Founder, The CSS ___
Dear CSS Colleagues: Enclosed is an interesting article which describes a technique for management of Massive RCT…and it is not SCR or Tendon transfer! Ashish Gupta is an innovative and talented surgeon with the courage to try new approaches. His approach is an extension of the original “Supraspinatus Slide” described by Debeyre in 1965. I am including my response to him as well as that of Bassem ElHassan, and also an additional article from work I did on this subject in 1989
Dear CSS Colleagues: Enclosed is an article entitled “Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (TSA) at U.S. News & World Report Top-Ranked Hospitals in Orthopaedics – Do Rankings Correlate with Complications and Cost?” by Sridharan and colleagues soon to be published in Seminars in Arthroplasty. I came across this as it was sent to my email and freely available online. As the conclusions and the methodology seemed questionable and the conclusions suspect, I share it with you here. I aske
Dear CSS Colleagues: Enclosed is a very nice study entitled “Trends in the most cited articles in shoulder surgery, 1900-2019” from authors at Johns Hopkins. There are many pearls offered here but several, in particular, that deserve mention. First, Rotator cuff disease continues to be the most popular topic. This is evidence for the economic and clinical burden of this disease and perhaps our inability to manage the full extent of the condition. Second, there was not only a
Dear CSS Colleagues: I was recently asked to do a PODCAST on Career Development, Value-Based Care and the Business of Orthopedics. This podcast was created by Ajay Shah who is an incoming Orthopaedic Surgery resident at the University of Toronto. AJAY wanted to have me address questions that may affect the career trajectory of young orthopedic surgeons. Perhaps this may be of interest to some of you.
