It says a lot when we had a hard time deciding to call this episode either “International Rockstar” or “The Meteor” for this surgeon’s meteoric rise in orthopedic surgeries. Dr. Chahla is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of complex knee, hip, and all sports related injuries. He is a team physician for the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bulls and Chicago Fire. He did his education in his home country of Argentina, where he got his MD and Ph.D. Dr. Chahla did not one, not two, but three fellowships at top institutions in the U.S. including SMOG, SPRI and Rush Orthopedics. Dr. Chahla is passionate about research with 250+ published articles, 30 book chapters and well known internationally with his lectures. This is a remarkable story with truly an international orthopedic rockstar. Discussion topics include:

-How he overcame so many hurdles with medical schooling in Argentina and getting accredited in the U.S. through fellowships

-Importance of mentorship

Community – “The Alt-AAOS Episode 3”

In this episode we explore a rarely covered but essential part of the orthopedic family, The Orthotist. We are talking to Orthotist, entrepreneur, and industry influencer Mr Spencer Doty. We discuss the effects of the current pandemic on orthopedics, elective surgeries, hospitals and clinics. Spencer describes how they are delivering care today and what the future holds. This was recorded last week and although not technically inline with our “Alt-AAOS” programming the content was too valuable not to post right away.

What is the “Alt-AAOS” series?

We, like you, had planned to be in Orlando to bring you interviews and happenings associated with this epic annual event. To do this we had proudly partnered with our first ever sponsor, Xiros. When the event cancelled we figured that was that, but Xiros generously continued to support our mission to “Advance patient care through the sharing of ideas and information” and the “Alt-AAOS” was born.
Thank you Xiros you rock!

Community – “Is there a doctor on board?”

An orthopedic surgeon, a collapsed lung and a bottle of cognac were all on a flight.. Today’s show may sound like a setup for a joke, but for Professor Angus Wallace this journey was no laughing matter, at least until now.
