Dear Colleague:
Thank you for taking the time to read the first edition of Partners Orthopaedic Trauma Rounds. We hope these Rounds provide you with useful information that you can apply to your practice.
We plan to publish quarterly both on paper and here on our website. Each issue will feature an article authored by one of our Partners Orthopaedic Trauma faculty, whom you will be able to contact directly with your questions and feedback.
The Partners Orthopaedic Trauma Service is a combined clinical and academic entity which spans the campuses of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham & Women’s Hospital. This year, we celebrate our Tenth Anniversary. We could not have come this far without your support – our partners in the community.
In this new venture, we welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
Best regards,

Dr Mark Vrahas
