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!

Education – “The Alt-AAOS Episode 1”

For the first time in our short history we had decided to work with a sponsor, an orthopedic company by the name of Xiros, to make the AAOS episodes possible. When the Academy took the wise decision to cancel we figured that was that, but Xiros, to their credit, said we should go ahead anyway and they very generously wanted to continue to support our newly dubbed “Alternative or Alt-AAOS Episodes” a collection of interviews from surgeons who had intended to deliver presentations in Orlando, bringing you their key message here on the Ortho Show.
