Becker's Orthopedic Review—February 5, 2015
Hospital for Special Surgery launched a website that includes orthopedic and rheumatologic patient stories. Patients submit stories to the website, which is the largest of its kind. There are more than 400 searchable stories on the site, titled "Back in the Game."
Here are five key points:
1. The number of stories is expected to grow quickly. Hospital for Special Surgery treats nearly 30,000 patients annually from 105 countries and all 50 states.
2. Stories include average patients as well as professional athletes, including Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love, who underwent hand surgery by Michelle Carlson, MD.
