October 6, 2010 Grand Rounds Video: Cost Savings in Fracture Care

"All for One or One for EACH" Evolving low-tech and high-tech technologies for IM nailing

Along with technological advances in Orthopaedic fracture care implants came a steep increase in prices, severely limiting their worldwide availability. In this program, an advocate for simple, inexpensive, yet highly effective implants, Dr. Lou Zirkle of Richland, Washington will debate UW Medicine physician M. Bradford Henley, who has successfully designed a number of highly evolved implant systems. UW Resident, Dr. Ben Amis, will provide a number of comparative statistics and cases to improve understanding of this contentious issue.
