New DVD on meniscal repair now available
F. Alan Barber, MD, has completed development of a new Academy education program titled Surgical Techniques in Orthopaedics: Meniscal Repair. This DVD video program provides a comprehensive overview of the current status of meniscal repair, providing more than 45 minutes of in-depth video. The program provides instruction in the principles of anatomic repair and stable fixation and helps orthopaedists differentiate between repairable and non-repairable tears to determine appropriate treatment. The program will help the practicing orthopaedist compare and contrast the operative details required for suture, implant, and self-adjusting suture repair techniques. The program sells for $149; $129 for AAOS members. To order, call customer service at (800) 626-6726, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or access the home page.
