The Future of Orthopedics With Dr. Greg Martin


There was a really interesting interview done in Becker”s Spine Review with Doctor Greg Martin of JFK Medical Center in Florida.  He discusses quite a few things that have changed (for the better) in Orthopedic Surgery over the past few years.  For example, he talks about two systems that helped with knee replacements over the last decade, ConforMIS and iTotal, both of which were put into online casinos place to help change technology and improve anatomic knee replacements.

Overall he expressed a feeling that these advancements in technology make surgeries more quickly and efficiently and “inspire confidence” in both the physicians as well as in the process.  Additionally, it eliminates the need for “nine or 10 different trays prepared for every surgery”.

Patient specific implants will be a trend that he sees continuing in medicine, since it makes sense to both doctor and patient.  This was not feasible 10 years ago since it was logistically very difficult to produce patient-specific implants, now, however, with the implementation and proliferation of these two companies (and others like them), that hurdle has been crossed.
