Jennifer Laine from Gillette joins the show to discuss the International Perthes Study Group’s work on early Perthes disease. We also highlight papers from the newest editions of JBJS, Spine Deformity and JPO and discuss a case of a severely displaced lateral condyle fracture
From guided growth, to releases, to anterior fusions, saving levels and improving outcomes ICL.
Anterior spine surgery, specifically anterior releases and anterior fusions were a commonly taught technique in the past. But with the advent of pedicle screws many young surgeons are unfamiliar with the approach relying on all posterior techniques. More recently vertebral body tethering has re-popularized the approach, though with a newer generation of surgeons that are unfamiliar with its other…
Spinal deformity surgeons are at increased risk of overuse injuries. The use of power instruments has been incorporated to reduce the rate of occupational injuries and increase efficiency of surgery without increasing risk to the patient. The pneumatic powered Kerrison rongeur minimizes the force a surgeon must apply and theoretically may increase precision.
James Sanders, Chairman of UNC Chapel Hill, joins the show to discuss his latest research as well as some other recent studies. Your hosts are Carter Clement from Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, Craig Louer from UNC, Josh Holt from University of Iowa, and Julia Sanders from Children's Hospital Colorado.
Nick Fletcher speaks with Dr. Scott Kozin of the Philadelphia Shriner's Hospital to discuss Dr. Kozin's career, his philosophies on leadership and education, pearls and pitfalls for international work, wisely selecting hobbies, and more. Produced by Nick Fletcher and Carter Clement.

This webinar is designed to give a complete overview of how pediatric orthopedists can utilize digital health and telemedicine technology to augment traditional, in-person care. As payment models shift towards value and away from fee-for-service, the ability to utilize telemedicine in one's practice will be very important. Now more than ever, should pediatric…
Severe Scheuermann’s Kyphosis can be associated with pain and a lifetime of progression. Operative treatment in carefully selected patients has been shown to improve radiographic outcomes, pain, and satisfaction compared to non-operative treatment. Historically, combined anterior disc releases and fusion with posterior instrumentation and fusion was the preferred method of treatment. However, more recently with improvements in spinal instrumentation and use of posterior osteotomies…
Juvenile hallux valgus is a complex condition that is associated with multiple forefoot abnormalities and can be accompanied by a flexible flat foot. Initial treatment remains conservative with large toe box shoes, pain control, stretching, taping, or spacers. When indicated, surgical treatment is controversial because of the greater than 100 described surgical procedures and a historically high prevalence of recurrence. However, more recent reviews of surgical techniques for juvenile bunions…
