Thank You Grand Rounds ACP Internist

Thank you to the blog ACP Internist for including my post Knee Surgery - Arthroscopy Results No Better than Pretend Surgery in this past week's edition of Grand Rounds.

On the web, Grand Rounds is a list of the best on-line medical posts from the past week. A different host works each week to find and list the articles. This is different from the Grand Rounds in a hospital, which is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic.

Special thanks to ACP Internist for finding Knee Arthroscopy in last month's Fitness Fixer articles. Two other Grand Rounds editions informed me it was "not appropriate" for an audience of physicians.

Doctors and patients benefit by information that helps them make healthier decisions. Knee surgery is done, recommended, repeated and taught, but the evidence base shows it is not needed in many of the cases.

Thank you to this week's host ACP Internist for doing the hard work of collecting and featuring our posts.
