PAOS annual survey

Posted By Sam Dyer, Tuesday, October 3, 2017
I love the fall! It is my favorite time of the year (all except for leaf management--which I don't really mind). Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, all are right around the corner...I hope you are looking forward to these times with family and friends as much as I am. Before we get to those dates, I need your help. Please take 10 minutes to complete our annual survey when it is sent to you in the next couple of weeks. This is such an important benefit to PAOS membership. It gives you objective evidence to use for salary negotiation, benefits packages and a comparison of financial and practice patterns of your colleagues. New this year, we will be able to customize the data per state (will continue to have regional and national data as well). Please take the time to do the survey when it comes to you. Thanks for your help.

Salter IV fracture

Posted By Sam Dyer, Thursday, August 31, 2017
So working in a walk in ortho urgent care, I see all sorts of general orthopedic conditions. I never knew there were so many nursemaids elbows until I started it. You can imagine the LBP, the knee OA, the ankle sprains, etc. But every so often I get something I don't see very often. This is a Salter IV fracture of the middle phalanx. The kid was playing football and the ball impacted his finger awkwardly. Given the skeletal immaturity, will be treating this conservatively with a splint for a couple of weeks followed by buddy taping and early ROM.

Fun in Baltimore

Posted By Sam Dyer, Monday, August 28, 2017

Welcome home Baltimore attendees!

I'm taking a day off from my clinic job to catch up on emails and other tasks. I hope you all had safe travels and are back with family and friends. My thoughts and prayers to our colleagues in Texas; I hope that you all weren't affected by Harvey and if you were, I wish you a speedy return to normal.

PAOS sent all attendees a post conference survey, please complete it so we can have more information on how to improve our future meetings.

What did you like best about the meeting? I was quite impressed by the first ever poster presentations. Kudos to all of you who entered a project! Well done! I hope that we can expand this effort next year. We are also planning on student papers/presentations linked to the scholarships. If you know of a deserving student, please direct them to our scholarship page.

Also please utilize the forum section we have created. i would like to increase our member engagement.

Thanks to you all who made Baltimore a success.

Sam

Excited about Baltimore!!

Posted By Sam Dyer, Friday, August 11, 2017

Is anyone as excited about Baltimore as I am? Our committee has planned an exceptional event with instructional workshops, an awesome lineup of lectures, and fun social events. I can't wait to check out the inner harbor, Camden Yards, get some seafood, and enjoy myself for the week. I hope to see you all there.

CHEERS!!
