JBJS is pleased to mark the 10-year anniversary of its innovative, online video journal JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques (JBJS EST).
In celebrating the milestone, JBJS EST Editor Dr. Ed Cheng joined Drs. Mo Bhandari and Marc Swiontkowski on a recent episode of the OrthoJOE podcast for a dynamic discussion of the journal—including how the audio and visual components of EST articles allow viewers to “get inside the mind” of the master surgeon, and the role of the journal as a helpful resource at the point of care, demonstrating both general orthopaedic Key Procedures and more complex Subspecialty Procedures, supported by published outcomes. The submission and peer-review processes, newer technological developments, and anticipated future directions are also discussed. Click here to access this informative OrthoJOE conversation.
Additional reflections on EST’s 10-year history, and the path ahead, can be found in this recent editorial by Dr. Cheng and Dr. Swiontkowski. As they note, “Since the inception of JBJS Essential Surgical Techniques, we have been steadfast in our mission to provide high-quality, peer-reviewed content that can be utilized as a teaching tool for surgeons at all levels of experience.”
