Who We Are
Lectures, journals, online videos...they can all teach you the newest techniques in orthopedic surgery. But what about the tools of our trade? Who makes the “best” meniscus repair device, or most “logical” spine implant, or the most “biocompatible” allograft implants? For years, surgeons have been teaching surgeons how to do procedures, but there been much less emphasis on what options we have to equip our operating rooms and clinics. Enter OrthoConnect!
OrthoConnect is the only virtual exhibit hall managed entirely by the medical device industry. At OrthoConnect, you can not only discover and discuss orthopedic products, you can interact directly with the device companies for further education and support.
The “Online” Exhibit Hall
OrthoConnect is designed to allow you, the healthcare professional, to quickly and easily access the devices and products you need to become a better practitioner. Orthopedic technology is always rapidly evolving. In fact, major advancements pioneered by the orthopedic industry have allowed us to perform complex procedures much more efficiently and cost effectively than ever before. Rotator cuff repairs, cruciate ligament reconstructions, joint resurfacing, and even spine fusions are being performed less invasively than in the past, and often on an outpatient basis. Patients are benefitting from less pain, faster recovery and more predictable results.
The problem is that government regulations, concerns about industry influence in hospitals and clinics, privacy regulations, and costly meeting venues have made it harder for physicians and industry representatives to stay connected.
How Did You Do That?
Education is not all research and results. it’s also understanding the tips, tricks, and techniques that make the procedure possible. Animations, brochures, and videos can keep us “fresh” on using many of the complex devices that are available today. OrthoConnect has them all. Review a device video, download the device PDF, or contact a company representative all through our dynamic website that keeps you up to date. Refresh your memory, check out new product updates and revisions, or simply explore alternatives that your friends or associates might be talking about. Save your favorite products in your own personal account for quick review.
