OrthoEvidence™ is the global online source for high quality and timely orthopaedic-only evidence-based summaries, pre-appraised by orthopaedic medical experts. OrthoEvidence is the first of its kind, an orthopaedic-focused evidence-based summary provider; built for the orthopaedic community by orthopaedic experts. OrthoEvidence was created with the inspiration to provide critical information access to orthopaedic healthcare providers and their patients everywhere.
OrthoEvidence utilizes a rigorous, transparent and unique multi-step process to review, evaluate and summarize research studies, while including critical implications. This information is delivered in its easy-to-use Advanced Clinical Evidence (ACE™) Report, enabling orthopaedic professionals to not only digest ten times more research than through a medical journal, but ensuring every piece they read is worth spending their time on.
OrthoEvidence's repository includes thousands of ACE reports from more than 360 journals representing all sub-specialties, and new reports are added daily. Current research is typically summarized and posted within one month of being published, twice as fast as other evidence summary providers. Our reports are available to our growing membership of more than 58,000 practitioners, including surgeons, residents, nurses, physiotherapists and other allied healthcare professionals. Some of our partners include The Canadian Orthopaedic Association, The International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, and The Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
OrthoEvidence was founded in 2009 by a global leader in the orthopaedic field, Dr. Mohit Bhandari. Dr. Bhandari has received international recognition for his research efforts including a nationally recognized Canada Research Chair in Musculoskeletal Trauma — the only chair of its kind in Canada. Dr. Bhandari has also received the Edouard J. Samson Award for a Canadian Orthopaedic surgeon with the greatest impact on research in the last 5 years, and the Founder’s Medal for Research. Over the past 5 years, Dr. Bhandari has published hundreds of peer-reviewed papers across top medical journals including New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, BMJ, CMAJ, and the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery-American, and was recently listed among the top 10 cited orthopaedic surgeons over the past 20 years. Most regard Dr. Bhandari as the foremost authority in the translation of Orthopaedic research to clinical practice (evidence-based orthopaedics).
