Here are four orthopedic surgeons making headlines this week:
Dr. Richard Berger told Becker's Spine Review that Chicago could see multiple waves of COVID-19 as businesses reopen.
William Ben Kibler, MD, retired from Lexington (Ky.) Clinic Orthopedics – Sports Medicine after 43 years of practice.
A second COVID-19 wave in the fall would be "incredibly devastating" for the economy, as well as the country's sports seasons, said Asheesh Bedi, MD, team physician for the Detroit Lions.
Sergio Viroslav, MD, of San Antonio-based TSAOG Orthopaedics, estimated that his practice lost 90 percent of its surgical volume and half its office visits from mid-March through April.
