Notice a dip in the number of shoulder, elbow and knee surgeries that your facility hosted in the middle of February? Chances are it was because your orthopods were in San Diego at the annual American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons meeting. More than 15,000 surgeons and administrators like me came to audition the new toys and tools that 11,000 exhibitors had on display. Knees, hips, shoulders, hands, spine: You name the bone or joint, and there was a new minimally invasive surgical solution for it at AAOS.
