Unique Publisher Collaboration Highlights How Orthopaedic Surgeons And Physical Therapists Working Together Improves Patient Outcomes

Commenting on the significance of the report, Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, Dr. Vernon Tolo, has this to say: "This Special Report shines a light on the many opportunities those of us involved with musculoskeletal care have to work together for optimal patient treatment and recovery.   The collaboration between orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists can be successfully used in patients young and old, as exemplified in the individuals featured in this report.  It is clear to me as an orthopaedic surgeon that the successful result following surgery very frequently has a great deal to do with the postoperative physical therapy. I hope that this Special Report will stimulate both orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists to develop a closer working relationship to optimize the results from both our treatments."

Dr. Guy Simoneau, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy, agrees. "The success stories described in this Special Report, covering a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, clinical settings, and surgical as well as non-surgical solutions, highlight the vital importance of effective and collaborative patient management on the part of the responsible healthcare team.  These case studies represent models of successful teamwork between orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists in particular.  I look forward to our respective communities working together to expand on and strengthen this alliance, in order to best serve our patients."
