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.

This episode of the Ortho Show “Alt-AAOS” is brought to you by Xiros North America. Xiros are excited to be launching their new Infinty-Lock Button system, a super simple, super fast, ACJ repair system. No coracoid drilling, high strength, low stretch, less time. Check out the the Infinty-Lock and Xiros’s other new innovations at

In this first Alt AAOS episode we talk with Dr Jorge Chahla from Rush University Medical Center. We cover biologics and knee ligament reconstruction, two of the topics he was scheduled to discuss at the Academy meeting.

Education – “In my opinion”

Join us for an interesting discussion with Dr John Richmond on his personal philosophy on managing OA knee pain before surgical intervention and different approaches to ACL repair. He has a real depth of experience and has been a member of research teams that have received the O’Donoghue Sports Injury Research Award in 1995 and the Cabaut Memorial Basic Science Research Award in 2007, both from the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. We greatly appreciated Dr Richmond taking the time to talk with us and we would love to hear your opinions on the approaches covered in this interview .
