Marc Swiontkowski, MD, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery (JBJS) and Co-Editor of JBJS Case Connector, has announced that, effective January 1, 2016, Ronald W. Lindsey, MD, will join Tom Bauer, MD as Co-Editor of Case Connector. Dr. Swiontkowski will step down from his role as Case Connector Co-Editor but will remain as Editor-in Chief of JBJS. “I am confident that Ron and Tom will help move Case Connector into position as a foremost resource for clinicians seeking guidance and information on rare and unusual conditions from across the globe,” said Dr. Swiontkowski.
Dr. Lindsey is a Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery & Rehabilitation and Chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Rehabilitation at the University of Texas Medical Branch, as well as a former Associate Editor for JBJS. After receiving his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and completing an orthopaedic residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, Dr. Lindsey pursued several fellowships at prestigious European orthopaedic institutions, including AO and spine fellowships at the University of Basel, and a spine fellowship at the University of Marseilles.
“I look forward to working with Dr. Bauer and the JBJS Case Connector editorial board to continue building a premier online database of peer-reviewed orthopaedic cases and the technology that enables orthopaedists to efficiently filter case information,” said Dr. Lindsey. “Our goal will always be to assist orthopaedic surgeons in the search for clinical precedents, connections, and trends in their efforts to improve patient care.”
