Healthcare community responds to Boston Marathon tragedy
"Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this tragedy," said AAOS President Joshua J. Jacobs, MD, in a separate statement. "Fellows of the AAOS demonstrated their caring, compassion, and expertise by providing both first aid and definitive orthopaedic care. The AAOS stands with the citizens of Boston during this difficult time."
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Journal of the AAOS is offering free online access to all of its recently published clinical and surgical techniques articles on the treatment of severe trauma. The articles are largely drawn from the trauma care experiences of military and domestic orthopaedic surgeons who have treated personnel severely wounded while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Three complete supplemental Extremity War Injury publications and more than a dozen articles are available free of charge until May 31, 2013.
