Welcome to OrthoCases…

A forum to discuss new advances and challenges
specific to orthopaedic post-operative pain management.

OrthoCases is the new, interactive website that facilitates the need for open discussion in the area of orthopaedic post-operative pain management by providing the means for you to ask questions, provide insight, or discuss your own experiences with fellow orthopaedic surgeons from around the world.

Presented by DT MedSurg, LLC and sponsored through an unrestricted, educational grant provided by Pacira Pharmaceuticals, Inc., this continuous collection of case studies will keep orthopaedic surgeons abreast of the ever-changing topic of post-operative pain management and its corresponding improvement of patient care and patient outcomes. The cases presented will focus primarily on pain management following foot and ankle surgery, and knee and hip surgery, as well as patient-experienced post-surgical pain, patient rehabilitation, and other related topics.

10 cases highlighted per year.

Throughout the upcoming year, we will present 10 cases based on various aspects of orthopaedic post-operative pain management written by prominent members of the OrthoCases advisory board.

Participation has its benefits.

All participants providing comments or questions relevant to the current case study will be enrolled in a quarterly drawing for a complimentary copy of one of three eminent textbooks provided by Data Trace Publishing Company. The appropriate textbook that corresponds with that particular case will be awarded to the physician whose name is drawn randomly from the case study’s participants. The textbooks being awarded are:

  • THE HIP: Preservation, Replacement, and Revision
    Editors: James Cashman, MD; Nitin Goyal, MD; Javad Parvizi, MD, FRCS
  • THE KNEE: Reconstruction, Replacement, and Revision
    Editor: Javad Parvizi, MD, FRCS
  • Practical Pain Management for the Lower Extremity Surgeon
    Editor: Stephen L. Barrett, DPM
