JBJS announces its new, interactive website, Making History Together, which celebrates 130 years of history at JBJS and the collective history of the field of orthopaedic surgery. The focal point of the new site is a dynamic timeline highlighting key moments and people in orthopaedics from 1887 to the present.
“We designed this site to give you a glimpse into our shared, collective past and show you how JBJS and the field of orthopaedic surgery have evolved over the last century-plus,” says JBJS Editor-in-Chief Marc Swiontkowski, MD. “The site is both informative and entertaining, and we hope that it helps you to feel more closely connected to those who paved the way for current and future orthopaedic surgeons.”
