Illinois Bone & Joint Institute is proud to announce the launch of a new podcast series entitled IBJIOrthoInform, as an educational resource for existing and prospective patients to learn more information about common orthopedic conditions and procedures.
IBJI will release the first two episodes on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, with subsequent episodes set to be released every other Tuesday. Each episode is limited to a digestible 25-30 minutes and will supply patients with more information about common orthopedic conditions and what to expect before, during, and after their next surgical procedure. The information in each episode will also serve to augment and reinforce the informed consent discussion between physicians and patients and be an additional resource for questions or answers that may not have been remembered from in-office discussions.
Episodes are hosted by IBJI’s own Dr. Eric Chehab, as he interviews IBJI doctors across all musculoskeletal specialties on a variety of topics for each episode.
“The purpose of IBJIOrthoInform is to provide information for patients about common procedures we do every day,” says Dr. Chehab, “We are recording episodes initially for the most common procedures and will expand as we can. It’s doctor-provided content, so patients can receive more expert information about musculoskeletal conditions and procedures.”
Topics that will be discussed on IBJIOrthoInform range from total joint replacements to sports injuries like ACL and rotator cuff repairs, as well as spinal procedures, podiatric procedures, and chronic conditions like autoimmune diseases and osteoporosis.
Subsequent episodes are slated to be released bimonthly, and the podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Overcast and other platforms.
